This event is the counter part to submitSuccess. While that event will trigger if the request is successfully fulfilled, this event will trigger if the request was correctly processed, but it contained validation errors.

Please note the difference between the following three events that can happen at the end of a submit - only one of them will trigger for each submit action:

  • submitSuccess - Processed correctly and no errors detected.
  • submitUnsuccessful - Processed correctly, but validation errors found.
  • submitError - An uncontrolled error occurred at the server-side (typically a JSON formatting error).
