    'Required' not respected on Email/Confirm Email field when tabbing through fields or submitting

    Asked by guest_23404753293049 on December 06, 2012 at 04:26 PM

    Hello Support,

    When tabbing out of a required field, forward or backward, JotForm immediately reports an error.  No problem there.

    When tabbing out of an Email/Confirm Email, forward or backward, JotForm does not report an error.  Although, tabbing backward out of the field sometimes triggers the reporting of an error.

    When clicking Submit, where some required fields have not been filled in, JotForm rightfully highlights all of the fields that fail validation, including those constrained by 'Requried'.  But JotForm does not recognize that 'Required' has been turned on for the Email/Confirm Email field.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. From what it appears, the confirmation field does not share the same 'required' validation with the original Email field. Hence, when tabbing, the last input box tabbed from isn't 'required', causing the form to not display an error message for the whole Email field.

    I have forwarded a ticket to our developers to have this problem rectified.

    We'll inform you as soon as possible.
