Hi, I'm new using PrimeFaces!
was trying to find if someone has already answered my question previously, but nothing found.

The question is the next:
I want to edit the error messages that primefaces already have as default. For example, I have this:

Code: Select all

# <h:form>  
#     <p:panel id="panel" header="Register">  
#         <p:focus />  
#         <p:messages />  
#         <h:panelGrid columns="3">  
#             <h:outputLabel for="firstname" value="Firstname: *" />  
#             <p:inputText id="firstname" required="true" label="Firstname"  
#                     value="#{personBean.firstname}" >  
#                 <f:validateLength minimum="2" />  
#             </p:inputText>  
#             <p:message for="firstname" />  
#         </h:panelGrid>  
#         <p:commandButton value="Submit" update="panel"   
#                     actionListener="#{personBean.savePerson}" />  
#     </p:panel>  
# </h:form>
This example is the "Focus" demo that is in

This example show the error message: Firstname: Validation Error: Value is less than allowable minimum of '2'

That I need is change the message "Value is less than allowable minimum of '2'" to another. Also if this error message can be internationalized

Somebody knows how can I do it both?

Thanks in advance and sorry if this is a newbie question

ps: If this is a the wrong forum, please accept my apologies and move them to the proper

You can use the p:inputText validatorMessage attribute and set the value from a ResourceBundle.

Alternatively, if you use BeansValidation you can annotate you entities and provide a message in the annotation.
