    Flex Validation

    mxvx Level 1



      Can someone tell me how to display the Flex validation errors below the field..  As of now I have the following validator, which is displaying the error message next to the control. I want that to be displayed beneath the control.




      id="statStrVal" source="{stateTxt}" property="text" required="false" maxLength="5"/>


      Thanks & Regards

          Just below your control specify lable make the visibility to false and also includeinlayout=false . Now in string validator add 1 more property "listener " and provide id of label to it. Then as soon as error comes it will show up to at listerner...


          <mx:Label visible="false" includeInLayout="false" id="error"/>




          id="statStrVal" source="{stateTxt}" property="text" required="false" maxLength="5" listener="error" />


          Hope it will help!!!

            If you want to position and style the error tip yourself, you can do so by using the ToolTipManager, which contains a style called errorTipBorderStyle. You can specify "errorTipRight", "errorTipAbove", or "errorTipBelow".
