Description

The Selector widget (when rendered as SELECT) is not validated if its data source is empty.

In this case, it is rendered without any OPTION tag and is not included in FORM submission.

An hidden INPUT may be added to provide a default value.

NOTABUG

The requested behaviour is not always desirable; anyway it can be easily implemented by adding an Hidden widget to the form, before the Selector.

Moreover the validation error message is application specific. A generic error message saying "that value is not in the empty set" is not descriptive of the error.
