    Is it possible to wait for validation until submission?

    Asked by marsupial on August 08, 2011 at 01:05 AM


    By default, when somebody is filling out information in a form, and there are requiered fields if they navigate thgought the form using the mouse or ALT Key, they get a lot of red squares, I would like to be able to wait until the person clicks on the submit button to make all the validations for required fields, is that possible?

    Hi marsupial,

    First of all, thank you for using JotForm.

    Unfortunately, that's not currently possible. It's the default configuration on how the form presents any invalid inputs. Whenever there's a validation mismatch with the inputted data, it informs the user promptly. In that way,they wouldn’t have to go over the whole form again to alter their submission after hitting the submit button.

    Hope this helps. If you do have other issues and concerns, please feel free to contact us.
