Webform error

  • Webform error
  • My basic form has usability issues with the "Required Information" messages populating is black and without an Error Summary on top of the webform.

    I have done some desktop research and discovered that CSS classes can control the formatting. I have a global .css which doesn't include a reference to sfError. Is sfError the class that would format the font for this message?

    I also discovered the sfErrorSummary class for the error summary on top of the form, how do I add the error summary to the top of the webform?

    Many thanks in advance


  • Hello Clint,

    In case you are using your custom Theme you need to style all the classes as per your needs or override the Basic styles.

    In order to have the error messages styled you have to add this declaration ".sfError" in your style sheets.

    Regarding the sfErrorSummary - such content is shown in case of any form restrictions and/or validation except the fields one. For example restriction one per user or Captcha validation.

    I hope this helps.
