Re: Converters on an XPage

appears to have no effect, despite this and other wiki articles claiming it does client side validation. The other article makes it look quite straightforward, a simple CDATA with some script using "value" as the control value and that's that. But it's not. What's missing?

Converters break ajax logic?

When client validation is inactive and the input in a field with a converter doesn't match the conversion pattern, the update logic breaks and no further javascript seems to be executed.

Is there a way to have the (not so sexy) client validation deactivated and still make the update logic work, even though a converter failed? Maybe with giving the reason why it failed back as an error?
