Validation message is not retained on the screen



The application has a grid in the section and validate rule is placed on the grid fields.
When validation fails,  it is noted that validation message appears for few seconds and then disappeares on the screen. But still the error messages are seen on the clipboard.

Error Messages

Error message disappears and gets recorded in the Clipboard page.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a grid in one section.
2. Place some validate rule on the grid fields.
3.Once validate rule fails, message is placed on the failure field and disappears after a while.

Root Cause

The user has configured a required field validation at the client side and has some validations configured on the same field at server side.
The root cause of the behavior is the required validation on the client side is fired when the onblur of the field and hence the toggleError message is fired on that field.


Issue is resolved by following local-change:
Have the required field configuration on the server side only instead of having it at the client side.
