Inappropriate validation message for integer field



In Chrome, required integer fields display an inappropriate validation message when non-numeric content is provided.
When blank, the validation message is correct: "Value cannot be blank."
When filled with a numerical non-integer (for example, 3.1) the message is correct: ""3.1 is not a valid integer value." However, when filled with a non-numerical value, the validation message is an unexpected "Value cannot be blank".

Error Messages

"Value cannot be blank"

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create an integer field and mark as required.
2. Input values and note responses.



The validation messages are browser-specific.


Perform the following local-change:

1. Open the section with the affected control.
2. Edit the cell property.
3. Change the type to Integer
4. In the Presentation tab, change the input type to Text, and text alignment to Right to receive justification consistent with numeric fields.
