Validation checks the names input whether they are
solely composed of English characters. If non-English
characters are present it will prompt saying \'Field
should be alphabetic\'.
After the patch is applied validation will be slacked
to an extent where it will confirm with the user
whether they want to continue if the names contain
numbers and freely allow any character other than
numbers. (i.e. even names with numbers are allowed if
the user really wants).
This patch applies to all versions from 1.2_alpha to
In 1.2_RC_2 it will be corrected.
How to do it:
To fix the bug you can replace hrEmpMain.php residing
in <orangehrm>/templates/hrfunct/ or
<orangehrm>\templates\hrfunct\ with the file attached.
<orangehrm> is the path to the location where orangehrm
files are residing.
