Or u can assign the validator to that component after all components have been rendered. i will try to find out more and will let u know. Asad.

I’m suspecting it is on how you defined the trigger. Michael J.

Usually, it's blue. I'm not sure how it's red in your case! You can change the color following this example. Thanks to Peter Dehaan for his great tip. http://blog.flexexamples.com/2008/04/12/changing-the-focus-rectangle-color-on-a-textinput-control-in-flex/ OR you can hide this by using the property: focusAlpha <mx:TextInput id="txtInput" focusAlpha="0"/> Good luck. --- In email@example.com <mailto:flexcoders%40yahoogroups.com> , dorkie dork from dorktown <dorkiedorkfromdorktown@...> wrote: > > When I display my Form elements (TextInput, Combox, etc) the red error > border is shown right away before the user even types into it.
