    Custom validation for prevalue fields

    Hello Umbracians. I have a problem.

    Im creating a custom propertyeditor with a few prevalue fields. One of them is a number field that i need to be required. I´ve managed to add the validation type "Required" and it works just fine (the editor cannot be saved without a number value) but i want to show my custom errormessage. What do i add to get this?

    This is my prevalue field:

            fields: [
                                label: "Max number",
                                description: "Max number.",
                                key: "maxNumber",
                                view: "number",
                                validation: [
                                    type: "Required",
                                    errorMessage: "Custom message", <-- Did not work
                                    errorMsg: "Custom message", <-- Did not work
                                    message: "Custom message", <-- Did not work

    All the above gives me this generic error message:

    enter image description here

    Hope anyone can help!

    Great thinking Dennis, posting a thread on a weekend.

    I keep forgetting that other people have lives..

    Hi Peter

    Could you perhaps share your current code on a Github gist for instance? it will make it a bit easier to understand the full context of your issue. I get that you need to be able to display a custom error message defined in the package.manifest but getting the full context will make it easier to test the code on a local instance of Umbraco and figure out if this might be a bug that needs to be addressed or if it's better and more desirable to make a workaround where you do the validation in the controller yourself by hooking into the notificationService for instance.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
