I am currently working on an information layer for web-based forms.
Wanted to see if people had seen examples of where field asstance or error
messages sit atop the form (in a layer) vs. showing the errors inline?
That or just good examples of inline errors and a statement of preference.
Trying to avoid page layout issues that would arise when long technial
correction details thrown into the page, but also wanting to ensure
regardless of page position and when large grids vs. on blank space.
