Client side file field validation on Update form?

Me again... ;)

If you chose a File Field as a required element when setting up form validations it creates a client side SPRY validation as well as the server side validation. As per your suggestion in the Data Assist forum, I don't think that it will work. Should WADB be creating this, or is there a better way to deal with the file field being required on the setup of the form on my end?

To make matters worse if you click on the SPRY area to delete it you get an error message in DW "The structure of this widgit appears to be damaged. Go to Code view and repair the widget, or replace the widged" so deleting it won't be easy. :)

It should not be adding the spry validation, i have logged a bug for this to be corrected in a future update,

you can easily remove the spry validation by editing the script near the bottom of the page. when you select the spry bounding box for the file filed, go to split view, and not the first span tag that is highlighted, for example:

<span id="ProductImage_Spry">
<input name="ProductImage" type="file" id="ProductImage" size="30" tabindex="8" onBlur="hideServerError('ProductImage_ServerError');">

the ID of the span tag for the file field is "ProductImage_Spry"

near the bottom of the page, is a script block to initialize the spry elements, the one for the file field uses the span tab ID:

var ProductImage_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("ProductImage_Spry", "none", { isRequired:true , validateOn:["blur"]});

you can delete that one to delete the spry validation.
