Field level error pop up



Pega's Out-of-the-box functionality gives a pop up message to correct the field level errors generated from the required field in the form. 

User requires to know if there is a possibility of suppressing this pop up on submitting the form ?

Error Messages

Please correct the flagged fields before submitting the form!

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section with required fields.
  2. Run the flow to reach to desired section.
  3. Submit the flow action without filling in the required fields.
  4. Observe the alert box with message is generated with the Error bar in the background.

Root Cause

Its an expected behavior. Normally screen readers are used, notification of validation errors is based on alerts, so if the accessibility ruleset is added then this behavior occurs. If removed then users may not know about validation errors.


The pop-up is generated from the areInputsValid API of pega_ui_doc.js.

As its a final rule, it must be overridden in the UserWorkForm HTML Fragment by removing the alert , that is alert(form_submitCantProceed). 
If this local-change is applied, then the error pop-up can be successfully suppressed.
