Error description

  • In CQWeb 8.0.0.x, if a short string or multiline field has an
    invalid value according to the corresponding field validation
    hook, the tab containing the control and the control's label are
    not highlighted in red when the record is opened for edition. A
    typical scenario is that of a short string whose value is valid
    in certain states (i.e. submitted) but not in others (i.e.
    Assigned). In this case if the record is transitioned with CQWeb
    to the Assigned state while the field has an invalid value the
    form does not display the expected highlight on the field and
    tab labels. The same action in the Windows and RCP clients and
    with CQWeb 7.1.2.x does behave as expected highlighting the
    field with the invalid value for the state to which it is being
    transitioned.
