How do I Validate Input Type Select

See original GitHub issue

Suppose I have a below select element: <AvField type="select" id="SalaryType" name="SalaryType" helpMessage="" required > <option>Select Frequency of Salary</option> <option value="1">Monthly</option> <option value="2">Bi-Weekly</option> <option value="3">Weekly</option> <option value="4">Fortnightly</option> </AvField>

Is there a option to show error when selected option is ‘Select Frequency of Salary’?

If no value is set on an <option> it will default to the text with in the <option> (this is per the HTML spec and is handled by the browser). So, the first option ends up having the value of Select Frequency of Salary, which is not empty so it passes the required validation. If you add value="" to the option, it should work as you intended. Demo:

Also, since the default value is will be "" (after the change mentioned above), it will not show the error initially. If the user changes the value and then changes it back, it should show the error. Additional, it the user doesn’t change the value and tries to submit the form, it should show the error.
