#7011 closed defect (fixed)

[patch] [cla] ValidationTextBox reset() doesn't reset field error message and status

Reported by: guest Owned by: bill
Priority: high Milestone: 1.2
Component: Dijit - Form Version: 1.1.1
Keywords: ValidationTextBox Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:

Description (last modified by bill)


  1. Have a ValidationTextBox in a Dialog
  2. Open the dialog
  3. Enter something invalid
  4. Error message is displayed
  5. Cancel and hide the dialog
  6. Re-open the dialog
  7. Error message and state is visible (i.e. not reset)

Solution: Overload the reset() method to reset the messages and state.

Notes: It would be nice if reset the fields for you:

dojo.forEach(this.getDescendants(), function(w){
    if(w.reset){ w.reset(); }

OK, there are two issues here:

  • ValidationTextBox.reset() doesn't clear the error state from the widget (i.e., it's still yellow)
  • enhancement for to do a reset() (BTW it can just call this.reset() since Dialog extends Form).

This is an enhancement request for Dialog. There probably needs to be a flag to reset or not since some Dialog's probably need persistence of values.
ValidationTextBox? already resets the error state.
Run dijit/tests/form/test_validate.html
Search for the "euro currency" textbox and enter some letters.
Press the Reset button and the error disappears.

Doug, I added this.reset() to and it mostly works, but in test_Dialog.html, on the first dialog, the DateTextBox isn't cleared. Can you fix that?

I'm still thinking about whether there should be a resetOnShow widget attribute, or show() should take a reset flag, but in any case need to fix that DateTextBox problem.

DateTextBox? reset problem fixed. Awaiting resolution on the resetOnShow attribute for the Dialog enhancement.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

OK, I don't think I'm going to add an automatic way for Dialog to reset at this point... developer can just call Dialog.reset() before calling The other part about ValidationTextBox (which is the main issue in this ticket) is already fixed, so closing.
