    The Require a form filed conditions is not requireing that the widgets I use be filled before it is submited.


    I have it set that if a user selects "A)Front" check box, then it is requried to fill out the "front colors" field. But if the user selects "A)Front" without filling out "front colors", the form is still able to be submitted. Please Help Thank You

    I was able to reproduced this issue when using the Matrix Dynamique widget.

    The condition action Require a Form Fields  does NOT take effect on the widget.

    BUT it does work on regular fields like Textbox.

    Here is a demo form that have this issue http://www.jotform.me/form/41537602676458 (in checkbox, the option 1 and option 3 will require widget and textbox field respectively)

    Even when widget is set to required, you will be able to submit the form when widget is empty.

    I will submit a bug ticket report to our higher team support so that this can be corrected.

    We will notify you on this thread when we have updates about it.
