Display message when select a ticket type

Is it possible to show a message when selecting a ticket type? For an instance, when selecting BUG ticket type, it should show an error or a warning message under the ticket type field. Can you guys help me to solve this?

I tried the following script with Behaviours but not works

getFieldById ("project").clearError();
getFieldById ("project").setHelpText("<div class=\"aui-message error\">This is the text</div>");

Hi Heshan,

You can use the setError() method for the field. See



If I remember correctly, you can also do something like this if you want your own custom HTML:

description.setHelpText("<a href=''>Google</a>")

For example, that should place a link to Google under the field on the form.



Hi Josh,

I need to have this under Ticket Type field. For an example, the message should display when I select STORY ticket type.
