Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. Min-length is set in the TextInput control. So the text element has both the minChars validation (onBlur) and the EditValidate rule validation (onChange). Whenever the text input is focused, minChars validation is triggered, and if the currentValue length exceeds the minChars configured, then all the errors present at the Property level are cleared instead of only clearing the error associated with minChars.


Perform the following local-change:

Include the minChars validation in the EditValidate rule itself.
