    Can I change the text appearing after a user ignores a required field?

    Asked by zuiderburen on September 01, 2010 at 02:30 PM

    I am a Dutch user of Jotform and I like the ability to have nearly every text in Dutch. But as far as I know it is not possible to change the text appearing after a user misses a required field. I would really appreciate if this would be possible  and also the background color. Will you ever add this feature?

    You should probably get zipped form source code and then edit the JavaScript files yourself.

    On the JotForm Form Builder:
    1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Share Form"
    3. Click on "Advanced Options"
    4. Click on "Download Zip".
    5. Open js/jotform.js file and edit this line:
    required:           'This field is required.',
