In this post, we will see how we can validate the form inputs on click of submit button and show all the errors in one window.


ZK Version : ZK 6
Project Name : MVVMFormValidation

        return allMessages;
    }

    public void setAllMessages(List<ValidationMessage> allMessages) {
        this.allMessages = allMessages;
    }
    
    @Init
    public void init(@ExecutionArgParam("vList") List<ValidationMessage> vList) {
        setAllMessages(vList);
    }

}


Now run the demo.zul file and do not give any value, you can see the following output
