Why doesn't Pega validate value selected by autocomplete?


Customer asks: Why doesn't Pega validate value selected by autocomplete?

Let's say we have a field where user specifies approver ID. After user selects approver@MyApp, and edit it to something like approverXYZ@MyApp which does not exist in system, system does not complain. Some customer expects any value selected by autocomplete also validate it by itself. So if edited value does not exist in the original autocomplete list, system should complain.

One way to avoid this is to use dropdown as this way user can never edit it. But dropdown can't display multiple information like autocomplete does. Is there any workaround for this? I don't feel like adding another validate as this is more than necessary.
