How do I change a form's default error message "The entered values cannot be saved..."

J Truelove asked on December 6, 2017 15:23

Good day DevNet--

I have a large but lovely form all set up and I've given each field its own "Default error message."

The one issue I'm having is that, if any required fields are not filled in by the end user, a string of text is displayed above the form upon submit:

"The entered values cannot be saved. Please see the fields below for details."

According to my customer, this isn't the most user-friendly messaging, so they'd like to change it.

But how?

We're using Kentico v9.0.

Thanks in advance!

There are 2 localization keys which you can update:

cmspagemanager.validationerror
general.errorvalidationerror

I believe the second one is the one you can add in your localization app and add a new value. Keep in mind it will update that value for all form submissions.
