Description (last modified by bill)

Hi, I found a ValidationTextBox widget is not corrected in the following situation:

1) When inputing empty value in it, or set in a program way, though the field is not require, the validation method still consider it as invalid input.

2) When the field is set to Diabled(I wonder if readOnly should handle as the same) status, the field should be clear and reset its validation status. But now it'll continue showing the invalid message.

I think we can handle this problem by change the line of assigning value to state property in ValidationTextBox? 108:

this.state = (isValid || (!this._hasBeenBlurred && isEmpty)) ? "" : "Error";

I recommand it to be change as following:

this.state = (isValid || (!this._hasBeenBlurred && isEmpty && this.required) || this.disabled (|| this.readOnly?)) ? "" : "Error";

This means the validate method would only be activated for the required fields which are activated.

Sorry, the code still have error, it should be like this:

    this.state = !this.required ? "" : "Error";
    this.state = (isValid) ? "" : "Error";
if(this.disabled )
    this.state = "";

The state map of a Validation widget as below:

 Required   | isValid   | isEmpty  | Disabled     | Focused    |   State
   True     | True/False|   True   |   False      | True/False |   Error
   False    | True      |   True   |   False      | True/False |   Normal
True/False  | True      |   False  |   False      | True/False |   Normal
True/False  | False     |   False  |   False      | True/False |   Error
True/False  | True/False|True/False|   True       | True/False |   Normal

Status: newassigned


isValid || (!this._hasBeenBlurred && isEmpty)


isValid || (!this._hasBeenBlurred && isEmpty && this.required)

is redundant since isValid would be true for isEmpty and !required.
Adding a check for readOnly is wrong since readOnly fields are submitted with forms and need to be validated.
Disabled fields should not be validated and thus this ticket can be used to fix that.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

(In [14286]) Fixes #6568. Remove error state for disabled fields. Added a testcase to test_validationState.html to disable/enable a field to see the effect on form submission.

(In [14316]) References #6568. Check for valueNode in case postCreate hasn't run yet.
