Hello,

I'm using templates to display the items and the selected value on a DropDownList.

I assign the optionLabel using a string. I do it this way because I don't know the object structure upfront (it is defined at runtime).

My challenge now is that the required validation is not working on this scenario. Please take a look to this JSBin: http://jsbin.com/eLaQaFaP/2/. It reproduces the issue I'm getting on my app.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Olivier,

The problem comes from the fact that in your template when you have the first optionLabel, it cannot locate the dataTextField and act accordingly. Please check the updated example here:

Hi Kiril,

Is there a way to have the validation message appear below the dropDown instead of 'inside' the widget? View your updated jsbin example for replicate.

Thanks,
Grant

Hi,

In order to control the position of the validation tooltip, you can use the following approach:

If this does not help - please open a separate support request with more details about your setup and we will be happy to help.
