Client validation shows the property name instead of description



Field level error messages display the property name instead of its description.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Have a text input in a screen and setup the property panel of the text input to accept minimum of 2 chars for the property.
  2. Keep the property name and description different in the property rule form.
  3. Run the screen and trigger the validation message, the message refers to the property name and not the description.

Root Cause

Property name has always displayed in the error message in previous versions of PRPC. Having the property description display instead of the name is an enhacement request.


This is expected behavior. Issue should be worked around by having appropriarte property names that can be displayed in error text.
