Improvement to "Validate form": Add "Set focus on control" option


Hi everyone,

most of the time an error raised by the "Validate form" action can be fixed by the current user. It would be great if we could have a new configuration option "Focus field" where you can set an expression/field.
When the error is displayed on the form the "Set Focus" action is executed and the configured value selected. I assume that the "Set focus" action already toggles collapsed groups/other tabs.

Best regards,

Thank you Daniel!

I have built quite a few rules to get that behaviour for the most problematic fields, having it out of the box would improve things a lot! :)

Thanks Christian for mentioning that you did it with form rules. :)

I've come up with a general solution to achieve the intended effect.
