Customizable error message for pattern fail case


Active member
When using the pattern attribute on a form option for validation, can you please add the ability to have a "pattern-message" or "pattern-error" attribute, so that an error message can be more meaningful for the end-user?

For example, today if the "pattern" match validation fails, the error doesn't give the end user any idea of what is wrong with their input.

Thank you!

Yes... it should at the very least be giving a "hint" to the pattern matching required. Probably simple oversight in the validation processing.
Most folks won't know how to read regex so displaying the pattern match might be tricky. Using a defined string IMO would be most user friendly.
I think customizable error messages for failed pattern validation would be a game-changer. Let's hope future updates include a "pattern-message" attribute for clearer user feedback. In the meantime, consider JavaScript validation for more control over error messages.
