Integer/Number controls do not fire validate rules in Chrome



Users are using a Integer/number control on a flow (underlying property is integer/decimal). On entering an alpha numeric value in the integer/number input field, validations are not getting fired and it allows form to be submitted. 

This issue is happening in Chrome and IE10+ browsers. IE 8, IE 9 and Firefox have no issue.

Error Messages


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create both an Integer property and a Decimal property. Add to section and change the control to be Integer and Number.
  2. Create a flow to run
  3. Enter alpha characters into Integer and Decimal input fields. Note that you will not receive the error!

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules.
'on focus out ' from input box the function "display_showImageError " function in "pega_validators.js" file is not getting triggered to display error mark. 


The fix will be in ML8. Below is a local change for previous PRPC 7.x versions
- use 'text inpt' control instead (you have done so)
- use IE 8, IE 9 and Firefox browsers.
