    Configurable list - drop down required field

    Asked by tracyalexander on April 27, 2017 at 01:44 PM


    I had this drop down field for No of Entries with a selection of 0,1,2,3,4 etc

    Is there anyway I can say that this field must be filled out with a figure of 1 or more using the drop down list?

    I have changed it so I dont have a 0 as a selection any more but I still dont think this the required will work for the drop down list?

    I checked your form and I saw that you already made the No of Entries in this Class field required. But since you put the number 1 as the first option it makes it always filled so your users will be able to submit the form even if they don't touch that field. So, I would advise you to change that field to this:

    I added the comma right before the number 1 so the first option is empty.

    And that will prevent your users to submit the form unless they fill that field.

    Hope that helps.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
