Apply validation action

Use the Apply validation action to validate the available controls on the desktop, phone and tablet forms so that you can apply the validation from any user interface that has events.

When the action executes, it validates all the controls on the form and displays errors if a control is not valid.

Note We recommend that you place the Apply validation action at the end, that is, after all the other actions are placed on a form. However, if there are other actions after Apply validation action, the actions are still executed.

  1. On the form modeling bar, click Actions and click New.

    The New action dialog box is displayed.

  2. On the Type list, select Apply validation.
  3. Change the default Name (ApplyValidation1) to something meaningful.
  4. Optional. Enter a Description for the action.
  5. Click Add.

    The newly created action is added to the table.

  6. Associate the action with the control to trigger this action. See Configure actions for form control events. Alternatively to call this action for a form event, associate the action with the form. See Associate an action with a form.
