Validate Element

This activity takes the value of the control and validate it. Choose the right validation algorithm from the ValidationID dropdown list. Available options are: Item List, Email, Decimal number, Date, Regular Expression, Numeric Range, Date Range. In ValidationParameter define the template used by validating algorithm. When validation result is false a yellow text balloon appears above the control in the browser window. The default text is “Incorrect data. Expected format: […]”, but you can put custom error message text (in Input part of Properties window). Text to match is an optional parameter.
