Subject [jira] Created: (SHALE-490) Want alternative ways of informing user of validation failure

Want alternative ways of informing user of validation failure

                 Key: SHALE-490
             Project: Shale
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Validator
    Affects Versions: 1.0.4
         Environment: Any
            Reporter: Jeff Tsay

I'd like to see the ability to override the validation error 
handler. Currently, with the default validatorUtilities.js, whenever a 
validation error occurs, an alert is displayed. To me that is a bit 
unpolished; I'd rather see some message below the input field that has 
an error. Although it's easy enough to replace validatorUtilities.js, 
jcv_handleError() simply doesn't get enough information in its arguments 
to do much with the DOM tree, unless the ID's of the elements to replace 
are hardcoded. It would be good also to let the user supply his own 
error handling script in the JSF tags, instead of messing with replacing 
validatorUtilities (which would be apply across the entire web app 
anyway). Any ideas on how to do this? Is anyone else interested in 
getting rid of alert()?
