Alpha Five Version 10 Feature Peek #45: Showing row-level errors in a pop-up window

We're human. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we miss a required field when we're filling out forms online. We've made an error. Normally an icon appears next to the missed field alerting you to fill it in to get to the next window.

But some forms are so long it's easy to miss the icon. As a developer, you want the user to know they've missed a field so they can quickly solve their problem. The last thing you want is a user wondering why that form won't submit.

Now there is a new feature in Alpha Five Version 10 that lets row errors be displayed in a pop-up window, along with the icon. This ensures that the error message cannot be missed. This video demonstrates the new error reporting feature in the grid component. Watch it, learn it, and use it. Enjoy!

In the video below, you'll see the conditional formatting in action, including conditional formatting at the cell and control level, and conditional formatting at the row level.
