Irrevelant message is getting displayed when I use ApexPages.addmessage()

 I am using

ApexPages.addmessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.Error,'Please Enter atleast four Characters'));

 to display error message. The error message is getting displayed properly based on the condition. 

  But the following warning message is also getting dislayed some times.

The element type "td" should be terminated by the matching end-tag "</td>". at line 21


This is not required. How to avoid this warning message on the screen? 




I assume that you are using html tags in your VF page.

I faced the same errors previously.

The conclusion is you have to resolve all the html errors when using add message because all the

html warnings will be displayed when the page message method is called.

Hi Knight,


I'd probably check the visualforce html to see if there are any tags which aren't closed properly.

I have noticed this "symptom" more when I am in dev, and have development mode turned on.  Frequently, the message is pointing at tags on line numbers that are beyond the range of my custom page.


You could try turning off development mode to see if the error clears up.  And then, just be cautious that you actually test with development mode off to make sure there are no real markup errors.

Thanks Jim. But in my case even if the  development mode is switced off I am getting the html errors. I have checked all the component files included in the page but not abble to find the mismatch. I am thinking of avoiding ApexMessages and start using custom defined messages. Like printing the string using apex:outputText.
