Setting accessibility configuration options

Updated on September 14, 2020
Note: This article is not compatible with Pega Platform™ 8.1 and later.

The PegaWAI RuleSet contains four controls that provide you with configuration options to disable specific elements of accessibility support.

The controls are shipped enabled to provide the respective support without the need for additional configuration. They are configured in the form of When Condition rules; when disabled, the respective options are removed as accessible user features.


Control Options

This control enables the following accessible error handling features:

  • Client-side validation that displays validation error messages in a popup confirmation box
  • Error messages displayed at the top of the form with “Error Occurred” text added to the window title
  • The red X error indicator (with hover over error message) is replaced with the error message displayed next to the field
  • Shortcut key ALT/E that places focus on the error field and moves through the errors in field order sequence
