Regarding the first point, I understand how this might seem inconsistent, but this is how the model validation works.
As for the other part, I meant the 3rd step and not the 4th (where the previously valid value is entered again after the failed validation
). At this point, no validation will fire and that is why the validation message will not be hidden. Notwithstanding, you can log a feature request in our portal by describing the behavior that you are expecting from the model validation.
