Mandatory Field Validation - troublesome OOTB functionality

Hi,

 

We are working on an application which has a number of mandatory fields such as Text and Date fields that need to be inputted by the user.

 

simplified example:

-----------------------------------------------------

   Name* :    ____________

   Date* :      ____________

   Other*:      ____________ 

{{Cancel}}   {{Submit}}
-----------------------------------------------------

 

It seems that the OOTB validation kicks in as soon as the user tabs (or clicks) away from a field. This leads to a situation where a user will see unnecessary validation errors when just clicking around the page. (For example, a user might decide to fill in the Date* field before Name*. But when the Name* field loses focus, he's immediately presented with an error saying that Name* is mandatory. This is pretty annoying to our users..)

Is there a OOTB way to do the validation when clicking {{Submit}} only? And not before then?

 

Thanks

Peter
