    Checkbox Selection Limit does not autovalidate

    Asked by selsheikh on June 11, 2014 at 11:55 AM


    I limited the selectin in some of the choices to 3 but the way the system works is that it will let you choose more than 3 and then when you submit, it will tell you you can only choose 3 choices.  Can we limit what they click to 3 from the start so they cannot more than x choices?

    Hi Shariff,

    The checkbox selection limit validation is working fine although I can see that it does not behave dynamically on the page just like when you leave required fields empty. Anyway, I have now raised this to our developers so they can investigate this further. We will let you know once this validation is improved.
