Edit Validate 'messages' are not cleared by Page-Clear-Messages



Page-Clear-Messages do not clear error messages added by Edit Validate rule.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Specify an Edit Validate rule for a property.
2. Add a button next to it to run an activity that has a Page-Clear-Message step.
3. At runtime, add a wrong value for the property to trigger the edit validate rule and click the button.

The error message added by the Edit Validate rule does not get cleared.

Root Cause

This behavior is an out-of-the-box functionality. 


The Page-Clear-Message method is used to delete all messages placed by the Page-Set-Messages method on the step page.

Messages placed by constraints rules, edit validate rules, and property type validation are not cleared - they are cleared and the restrictions are detested only when the property value changes.

This information is also documented in PDN.
