Validation Failed Message property

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:
Specifies the error message that will be displayed to the end user of the generated application if the value range or regular expression validation fails.


Level: Attribute, Domain, SDT member, Variable


This property depends either on the Value Range property or the Regular Expression property, and its default value is calculated as follows:

  • If the Value Range has the value “Field %1 is out of range.” (the GXSPC_OutOfRange translation key).
  • If the Regular Expression has the value “Field %1 does not match the specified pattern.” (the GXM_DoesNotMatchRegExp translation key).

Note that the attribute's Description property substitutes %1.

This property is not available when the attribute is a formula.

Note: The property is inherited from any domain or attribute on which the attribute or variable is based (if any). The value can't be modified in this case.


Since GeneXus 17 Upgrade 4, this property also applies to SDT members.
