Adding Validation to Print the form first before submitting the form

    I'm using the Print Button option on one of your forms. Is there any way to add validation and ensure that the Print button is pressed before the submit button is pressed, i.e. to "gray out" the submit button until the form has been printed?

    I'm afraid there's no feature to strictly enforce print before clicking the submit button. What I can only suggest is to add a field that asks for confirmation if the user did print the form then reveal the submit button if they answered yes.


    Here's my configuration. In the first submit button field with print button, I hide the submit button by injecting custom CSS codes. Guide: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes

    In your form, this is the CSS code to hide its submit button. You can add another submit button after that just like my example above.

    button#input_7 {

      display: none;


    Then the show condition goes like this:
