#16778 assigned defect

dojox.validate.isEmailAddress validates domain names that conform to RFC5890, Internationalized Domain Names, as invalid

Reported by: inga Owned by: dylan
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.15
Component: Dojox Version: 1.8.3
Keywords: Cc: dylan
Blocked By: Blocking:


dojox.validate.isEmailAddress validates e-mail addresses that contain internationalized characters as invalid.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a dijit.form.ValidationTextBox, use a dojox.validate.isEmailAddress for validation.
  2. Type an e-mail address with internationalized characters in the text box. For example [email protected]ø

Expected result: The dojox.validate.isEmailAddress returns true, as this is a valid e-mail address.

Actual result: The dojox.validate.isEmailAddress false.

Browser type: FireFox
Browser version: 19.0 OS and OS Version: Windows 7

Support for RFC6530, Framework for International Mail, is however not yet widely supported. Thus, ideally there should be a switch for turning support for internationalized characters on or off.

In fact, it shows out that this standard is pretty much not supported at all yet:

Maybe this bug should just be deleted (I don't have access to delete it, so will leave that to someone else).

Could use \w in the regex in dojox/validate/regexp.js::emailAddress(), rather than A-Z. Or close the ticket. I don't care.
