#3165 closed defect (fixed)

dijit.form.ValidationTextbox clears the illegal value when it loses a focus

dijit.form.ValidationTextbox replaces an illegal value with an empty string, if it loses a focus. Please note that the empty string is not always a valid choice for a field. It could be reproduced with the existing test_validate.html page.

The correct behavior is: it should leave it there (and retain the "error" class) giving user a chance to correct it later, because it could be mistyped, and a lot of users do not look at the screen while typing. Instead of removing an extra character or correcting a similar simple typo, user is forced to retype the field completely.

At the very least this behavior should be easily customizable by subclassing a widget.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [8823]) Fixes #3165. Added optional displayedText parameter to Textbox:setValue so that the true value and dispayed value can be set with 1 call and kept in sync. Also, the displayed value is not changed if format() returns an error. Changed Select to use this new feature since its setValue calls are asynchronous.
