When this property is set on Yes, Error Rules that are executed on a field that has bad input, forces the user to correct this input in order to keep inserting data into the fields, if it is set to No, Rules are displayed but editing can be continued.

This behavior is considered only when editing fields, for instance if "Stop on Error" is set on No, This Rule:

Error ("Id can't be Empty") if EmployeeId.IsEmpty();

It will Show the message if EmployeeId is left without data, but will allow to keep editing other Attributes. when "Confirm" button is pressed, the rule will now act as usual stopping the user until Id is inserted.


The Rules are shown in any values of this properties, the difference applies on the possibility to continue editing new fields or not.
