I am working with Sitecore 8.1 and I am having a strange issue.
I have a General Link field called 'Login Link' on which I am trying set required field validation. I have selected 'Required' for all the validation rules section in the template for that field such as :
- Quick Action Bar
- Validate Button
- Validator Bar
Screenshot from validator bar section is given below:
However, when I go to the item that uses this template, I do not see Validator Bar for the Login Link field when the value is blank. Since I have Required selected in validator bar, I was expecting to see a red validator bar if the item fails validation. However, I do not see the validator bar when the item fails the validation. It does show up for the other field which is a rich text field.
Am I missing any step in this process? Please let me know!
UPDATE - 10/06/16
I did a little more digging into it and it turns out that only the first item that fails validation was getting the validator bar. When I moved my Login Link field to be the first item in my template, it did give me a validator bar. Please see the screenshot below:
Hope this helps!
