    how to use field validators, like an EmailValidator, in a Flash Catalyst project?

    flashypepo Level 1

      After making a contact form in Flash Catalyst, I added an EmailValidator in Flash Builder.

      Unfortunately, the validation error message is not visible: only the outline of the message box and the red outline around the input field.

       

      Does someone has some tips or suggestions how to make the error text visible?

       

      details:

       

      1. code snippets:

       

      in de <fx:Declarations> section:

       

        <mx:EmailValidator id="emailValidator"

                                                                     source="{emailInput}" property="text"

                                                                     triggerEvent=""

                                                                     requiredFieldError="Email address must be entered"

                                                                     missingAtSignError="add @-sign, please" />

       

      2. screenshot of 'empty' error message:

      (rectangle on the right in the image should display an error message)

       

      Thanks for any help,
