Forms: How to set Validations message at client side on built in form elements



I am using EPi form 4.4.2. I am creating forms with built in elements like Textbox, Numbers using regex etc. I want to set validation error message at client side for these elements when user tries to submit or on text fileld change. How can I do that. Do I need to create custom validation by coding or is there any inbuilt functionality in EPi forms for Validation error messages.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the reply.

I dont think this will solve my problem. What I want is for these built in elements, editors shuld be able to set error messages for each field. It may vary depending upon for which textbox is used. For example if textbox is used for Name then error message should be like 'Please enter name' etc. Also for regex the error message will vary. So what I want is along with validator type there should be a textbox besides that where editor can set error message.

Actually, there is a feature request that do the same your requirements. But I don't know when we could release it. So, if you need it in this time, you have to write your own elements and validators.
