Email validator seems buggy

Postby Michael Mooney » Tue Jul 17, 2007 5:16 am


If I set a std email text field to require validation via the Data Provider Validation tab, it works fine during routine keypunch.

If, however, I attempt this I get a problem:

1. On an existing record, I want to update an email field. I have a long string length (varchar(255)) due to some, shall we say, irregular source data that tends to be rather long-winded at times. However, seems the same on a varchar(80) field.
2. Enter an email field with the email validator running and type some suspect character like "Mr. Smith" into the email field (this simulates a user going into the wrong field and typing merrily away without bothering to check what field they are in).
3. Now try to exit this field without typing in a valid email address. First, try to remove the Mr. Smith (backspace key) and then try to tab out of the field.

I should be able to exit (with an empty field) by using my keyboard to clear out my erroneous typing - imho anyway. Same basic idea as a Valuelist permitting an empty value. rc5 is quite insistent, at present, that I get something in there ... even if I have goofed and don't want anything in the field.

Your thoughts? 3.5 rc5
