While running EAServer 3.0, and IE4, I receive the following alert
whenever I check the required column property in the datawindow
painter:

"Item <some value> does not pass validation test."

This error only happens in the htmlDw.

Please let me know if you need more detail. Thanks in advance.

Checking the required column box will generate client-side javascript to
check for required fields AFAIK. Which HTML Generation options did you
check?

Also, have you considered customizing the component to have the component do
required field checking? I've implemented this with our generator to place
an * in front of the fieldname to indicate a required field and then turn on
a text field saying "Required fields missing" if one was not entered.
