    Mandatory fields working differently in recent forms compared to older forms.

      Hi

       

      In forms 11g (and probably 10g too), if you tab to a field that is a mandatory field, once you enter the field you cannot exit without entering a valid value (ie it must be not blank and must pass any required validation).

       

      It seems that in Forms 4.5 you could tab into a mandatory field and the back tab out of it without entering a value.  I can't remember this being the case, but a client assures me that this how it works on their system.

       

      Is this difference managed by a property? Can I make forms 11g mandatory fields behave the same as Forms 4.5 supposedly did in this aspect?

       

      Note:

      It seems that this is supposed to by managed by the Forms level properties

      Validation Unit = Item

      Defer Required Enforcement = 4.5

       

      I have tried this but it does not seem to work for me, I can't back tab out of a blank mandatory field in Forms 11g.with these properties set.

       

       

       

      Thanks for any help.

       

      regards

      Tony
