Which lesson/course are you busy with? Regards, Miki Posted: 4 years agoDamien PEGA replied to nirmaladHi, You can use validate or edit validate rule. From the property itself you can adapt the OOTB edit validate rule "isFutureDate" and create "isPastDate" Depending on the property type, you can: datetime: use a validate rule and call the function [a datetime] is in the [past/future] date: use a validate rule and call the function that will call the function: Validation of [Property Name] using [Edit Validate Name] fail Damien Posted: 3 years agoanushakodeboina Capgemini replied to DamienHello, There is no edit validate rule called IsPastDate but there are some edit validate rules such as: pyIsPastDate and NotFutureDate which will come under the same scenario. Thanks, Mounica D Posted: 3 years agoJIBRANS4 INCESSANT TECHNOLOGIES replied to nirmaladHi Nirmal, Better option is to go for edit validate. Because in case you give a date control and in the UI you do not enter a date ( in case it is not required) then a default date of 1970 is displayed.
