Property level error messages stretch user interface



When we have an validation error on a field, the UI element for that field, such as its text box, is being stretched to match the length of the validation error.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a dynamic layout.
  2. Add a date property to the screen.
  3. Create a validation rule in a flow action an have the process hit the validation rule so that an a message is created.


Root Cause

Width of the element was not specified and will stretch as needed to contain any contents - including validation error messages.


Perform the following local-change:  Specify the desired width for the element so that adding additional content (in the form of validation error messages) will not cause the browser to render its width differently.
