Core Component Form Text Required Message / Constraint Message not showing as filled

Avatar

Level 2

We're using the Form core components in AEM 6.5

The form text however does not behave as expected. After adding Required Message :

It should show the message as mentionned in a tooltip. Instead, we're getting what seems to be a generic message in the language of the site: 

marissi_1-1695728506078.png

 

There is also a slight difference in the wording of the message depending on the browser used.

 

Same issue with Constraint Message.

 

Is this behavior normal? Did we miss a configuration somewhere?

Hi,

It should not show the default message, the authored message should be shown but somehow something is broken and custom/Authored message is not visiable.

Hi @marissi ,

Can you check in browser console if you are seeing any Java script error. If yes, then please try to fix it.

Thanks

Hello @TarunKumar   Thank you for taking the time to reply.

 

The console doesn't show any errors.

Hello @arunpatidar 

 

The message shown is "Veuillez remplir ce champ" which means "Please fill in this field" in French, the language of the site the component is used in. This message could potentially work as it is logical and makes sense for the validation, but it is not the message that was authored. It seems we do not have access to customize validation messages and the component defaults to browser to handle content of the message (like I said, the wording of the required message varies slightly from browser to another, but ultimately have same meaning, i.e the field needs to be filled in)

 

Is this behavior normal, even though the documentation specifies otherwise?

We're considering overriding the form components and changing the javascript.
