    Infinite List Widget: Option to make all fields as required

    Asked by bhds on January 17, 2017 at 03:25 PM

    How can I make all the fields in the Infinite List widget required?

    I have marked the occurrence of this widget on my form as required, but it seems that all a user has to do is enter a value in at least one field, whereas I want to make sure that users complete ALL the fields in each row.  I believe this is possible in the "Dynamic Textbox" widget, but, for various reasons, we need to use the "Infinite List" widget in this case.

    Thank you.

    Sorry but the REQUIRED property applies to the widget as a whole. This means, that regardless of how many fields you have on the Infinite List, Configurable List, or even the Dynamic Textbox widget, as soon as there's an input on at least one of them, the entire widget will be treated as filled out.

    Since you said, "for various reasons, we need to use the "Infinite List" widget in this case", the best we can do is elevate your thread as a feature request.

    Please keep in mind that there's no assurance whether this will be added. It will highly depend on the viability of the feature, the amount of similar requests we get, along with the workload of our Developers.

    We can't give you any timeframe but we'll keep you apprised on this same thread if/when there's an update.
