    It should work when you open the PDF file in a PDF reader program like Adobe Reader. 

    Here's a screenshot of the web form:

    Now look at the screenshot when I open the fillable PDF in Adobe Reader.


    As you can see, there is a red  border box on the text boxes indicating that it is a required field. The fillable PDF form cannot be submitted if these fields are blank.

    In Google Chrome, there is * or red border. It just a regular text box but if the required text box is empty, you can't submit the form.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
