      Is there a way within DFFS to modify the default error message for a unique value field?

      Searched online but all of the examples require adding a webpart to the newform page and I’m not sure how to translate those over for custom JS or if there was a DFFS value I could use.

      Here’s one of the examples:

      
      
      <a href="http://[yoursource]/jquery-1.11.2.min.js">http://[yoursource]/jquery-1.11.2.min.js</a>
      
      $(document).ready(function(){
      $("span[class=ms-formvalidation]:contains('This value already exists')").text('[Insert whatever message you want here...]');
      });

      Sigh… I keep putting the block of code in, selecting it, then click the CODE button and it puts apostrophes around it, but when I save it still changes the code. Just FYI since it looks funky.

      Hi,
      The problem is that this error doesn’t exist until you try to save. To work around this you can try this in you custom js:

      function dffs_PreSaveAction(){
          var ticker = 0, interval = setInterval(function(){
              if(ticker > 100){
                  clearInterval(interval);
              }else{
                  jQuery("span.ms-formvalidation:contains('This value already exists in the list.')").html("New value...");
                  ticker += 1;
              }
          },50);
      }

      Alexander
