Error When Editing “You Must Specify a Value for this Required Field”

by on March 15, 2012

So far I have only experienced this when editing Content Query Web Parts (CQWP), but it may appear in other instances.


“You must specify a value for this required field”image


PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea added to a panel set to hidden=”false”


  1. Remove the placeholder from the hidden panel and put it back in the regular page area (do not change the hidden=”false” on the panel, as it will save resources by not rendering the contents of the panel)
  2. create a class called “hidden” with display:none;
  3. Wrap the placeholder in a div with the class hidden applied like the below

<div class="hidden"><asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server" /></div>
