A sample use case presents such where we need to bypass form validation in the event of rejecting a request.

This is possible by adding an empty/dummy section in a form and changing the section's load binder to Bean Shell Load Binder to store this script below.
This script will remove form validation if the user clicks on "Reject" form button provided by the Process Enhancement Plugin.


import org.joget.apps.app.service.AppUtil;
import org.joget.apps.form.service.FormUtil;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.Element;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.Form;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.FormData;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.FormRowSet;

public FormRowSet load(Element element, String primaryKey, FormData formData) {
	//Feel free to change this "if" statement to suit your needs
    if ("#requestParam.process_reject#".equalsIgnoreCase("Reject")) {
        Form form = FormUtil.findRootForm(element);
        removeValidator(form, formData);
    }

    return null;
}

public void removeValidator(Element e, FormData formData) {
    e.setValidator(null);

    Collection children = e.getChildren(formData);
    if (children != null) {
        for (Element child : children) {
            removeValidator(child, formData);
        }
    }
}

//call load method with injected variable
return load(element, primaryKey, formData);


Another use case is using a button that is inside the form to remove validation. Simply replace "disable_validation" with a select box form element ID and replace "Disable" with the option value that will disable validation.

import org.joget.apps.app.service.AppUtil;
import org.joget.apps.form.service.FormUtil;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.Element;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.Form;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.FormData;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.FormRowSet;


public FormRowSet load(Element element, String primaryKey, FormData formData) {
    //get disable_validation value from form data object
    String disableValidatorID = "disable_validation";
    Form form = FormUtil.findRootForm(element);
    Element disableValidatorElement = FormUtil.findElement(disableValidatorID, form, formData);
     
    if (disableValidatorElement != null) {
        //get value of disable validator
        String[] disableValidatorValues = FormUtil.getElementPropertyValues(disableValidatorElement, formData);
        for(int i = 0 ; i < disableValidatorValues.length ; i++){
            System.out.println("Toggle Button Value " + i + ": " + disableValidatorValues[i]);
            //remove validator if checkbox value = Disable
            if (disableValidatorValues[i].equalsIgnoreCase("Disable")) {
                removeValidator(form, formData);
                break;
            }
        }
    }

    return null;
}


public void removeValidator(Element e, FormData formData) {
    e.setValidator(null);
    
    Collection children = e.getChildren(formData);
    if (children != null) {
        for (Element child : children) {
            removeValidator(child, formData);
        }
    }
}

//call load method with injected variable
return load(element, primaryKey, formData);
