Grid level validations not working as expected



Validations in repeating grids are set using the OnChange event. After clicking a different field in a row or clicking the same field and changing focus to a different location, the validations set on the fields do not display.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Set a validation message on a field using OnChange event.
  2. Click any other field in the respective row > Return to the field containing the message > Change the focus to a different location.


    Click the field which has the validation message > Change the focus to a different location.

Root Cause

If state of the value of the cell was not changed, the OnChange validation is not invoked on the grid. 



Perform the following local-change:

  1. Change Row editing to master-detail in the Operation tab of the grid configuration.
  2. Create a flow action.
  3. Add all the columns as text input. 
  4. Invoke an activity in the post processing activity of the flow action given in the modal dialog.
  5. Perform the validation on the activity.
An enhancement request, FDBK-26308, is created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
