• property

validationMessages has the default validation error messages that will be returned by the builtin validation methods. These can be overwritten by assigning new messages to can.Map.validationMessages in your application setup.

The following messages (with defaults) are available:

  • format - "is invalid"
  • inclusion - "is not a valid option (perhaps out of range)"
  • lengthShort - "is too short"
  • lengthLong - "is too long"
  • presence - "can't be empty"
  • range - "is out of range"

It is important to steal can/map/validations before overwriting the messages, otherwise the changes will be lost once steal loads it later.


can.Map.validationMessages.format = "is invalid dummy!"
