Validation error upon Pega provided 'Delete Item' functionality



User has implemented Out-of-the-box (OOTB) Add and Delete buttons on Grid. On clicking on Add, it provides with few mandatory fields.
Now when user is trying to delete that without entering values, system throws a pop up.

Error Messages

Please correct flagged fields before submitting the form !!

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a repeat grid with validations.
  2. Use pyPostGridUpdate activity for delete functionality.
  3. In this activity,use Page-Remove.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior for the grid configured with inline mode, such as read write & click row to edit. Data is submitted as and when user tabs out of the row, now when there is mandatory field in that particular row, "Please correct flagged fields before submitting the form !" alert appears.


To suppress this, implement the following local-change:

Add the below code in UserWorkForm:

window.customClientErrorHandler = function (){
return true;
