    Default v10 Detail View validation issue

    If a validation rule is broken in a detail view and I select the "Save record and add another record" button, the fields all go blank (for the new record) and then the validation errors show up, meaning all fields just changed in the detail view weren't committed (not just the invalid data). Is there a way to cause the validation errors to pop up prior to the new record appearing?

    I wanted to bump this back up, because I can't imagine I'm the only one who finds this confusing. I've tried to find ways around it, but haven't yet been successful. Essentially, if you fill in a whole lot of fields for a new record in a detail view and then click on the "Save Record and Add Another Record" button, if a validation rule has been broken, the problem field is highlighted as intended but all the other data is lost.

    Can anyone point me to a way around this?

    The grid will be set to update only. Check in properties.
