I am using Forms 6 and I have got problem with message that is related with validation of text field with mask in form.

I use mask "FM9999" (the field is type: number). When I put letters instead of digits after exiting the field, the message with error information appears as popup window on the screen. But I need to display the error information ONLY in the status bar.

I think that probably that should be any properties for solving the problem but I cannot find it...

If you know the solution, please help ....

I *think* that errors trapped by Forms itself are raised as alerts (which look like pop-up windows you described); you can't change that.

However, if you trap errors by yourself (maybe with the WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM trigger on that item, or ON-ERROR and/or ON-MESSAGE block/form level triggers), you can decide what to do: raise an alert or, as you want, display a message in the status line).
