We are on SPARK UI 4.4.4 EE/BPM 8.5.6. When we add a coach validation error to a checkbox group, the control does not display red. In the previous version that we used, it was working fine.jmacNovember 2, 2016 at 6:20 am #2987
Agreed…. this appears to be an introduced issue. We will log a bug and have fixed in an upcoming release

Seems this issue is fixed in 4.4.8 (Not sure fully or partially). While finding any open issue regarding the validation of Checkbox control, I found this post.
The setValid(false) on Checkbox Group now highlight the options text in red, but the boxes border don’t turn red (screenshots attached). Will there be any plans to fix this behavior to sync with other controls (highlighting borders instead of text)?
Back to the original issue, the Checkbox control is still missing this feature. Any plans to handle this like Checkbox Group.
Also same questions for Radio Button Group and Radio Button controls. The group is not highlighting the radio circles border and the later don’t even highlight the text.

The individual Checkbox and Radio Button controls do not support the setValid() method as they are intended to be used in a potentially smaller setting than a Radio Button Group for instance. The Developer is able to check if “no radio buttons selected” then “show error message”.
As for the Group controls, changing the Text color of the items seemed more eye catching than changing the color of the input boxes or buttons.

You are right Stephen. The use case may be very small but still it’s arguable, as being interactive input controls it’s expected to set the validation on these controls, which currently we cannot 🙁
For example, one use case is like “I have read the Terms & Conditions” checkbox, which is mandatory before form submit. It’s irrelevant to use the Checkbox Group with only one option (which is the work around we are using currently).
About Text color of items, I agree it being eye catchy, but even highlighting the borders might be same eye catching and also will match the behaviors of other controls. But it’s not a big problem 🙂

Thank you for the feedback. I will leave this forum open to see if any other SPARK developers have similar sentiments.
