    Required fields is causing confusion

    Asked by leminhd on June 16, 2011 at 11:52 AM


    I have to admit that I love this tool.

    I have forms that have required fields. The issue is that even if you click on that required field (without keying anything) and then click on another field (within the form or outside of the form), you get a pink box asking to fill in. You end up to have so many pink prompts eventhough you have not even click on the Submit button yet.

    Is there a way to freely navigating the form and it is only when you click on submit button, then it is when it prompts you for missing information and not while you are entering data ???

    Please help.
