    Need my Terms & Conditions required field so when they hit the submit button it will show the popup message.

    Asked by BarroFrog on December 12, 2014 at 07:38 PM

    I found out that the form will be submitted whether the "I agree to terms and conditions" box checked, or not. If that box is not checked, I would like a note to pop up when the "Submit" button is pressed indicating that the other box must be checked before form is submitted.

    How do I do that, please?

    Thank you.

    (I see that there a some "Conditional" options, but they don't include the "Submit" button in the drop-down list.)

    You need to mark your "Terms and Conditions" checkbox as required field so if the user hit the submit button without clicking the "Terms and Conditions" checkbox they will show the error message popup on the "Terms and Conditions" checkbox. Please check my screencast below to see on how to mark as required your "Term and Conditions" checkbox.

    Hope this help.

    New response receivedThat was a very excellent tutoring demonstration. The “Required Field” option should have occurred to me, but I’m pushing 72 and some things aren’t intuitive, anymore.
    Thank you.
