GXT – FormValidation und FieldMessages

Form validation in GXT is cool thing. It calls the method


and all input fields are validated. But the error messages are English. That’s no problem. GXT allows us to change these messages. In a way;

TextField bezeichnung = new TextField<String>();



Where you see this message, it is defined by the message target property. You can use the following property.

Value Description
tooltip Display a tool tip when the user hovers over the field
title Display a default browser title attribute popup
side(default) Add an error icon to the right of the field with a popup on hover
none Do not display an error message
[element id] Add the error text directly to the innerHTML of the specified element
