This is a UI design sketch for the 'required' property.

  • The required property has a different CSS class, and in our default themes, required fields are visually indicated by a light yellow background.
  • Required fields are followed by a red star: *.
  • When the user tries to save the page and there are missing fields, the UI shows a message in red below each missing field: "Please supply a value for %%field_label{…}%%."
  • When the user enters a value for the field and leaves the field (focus off) the message is removed immediately.
