    I have another request for some CSS Code. On my form I need the first selection in the drop down boxes to not qualify as a required field. Example I need my customers to select a product before the form sends the info. So i need the product selection not to count as a required field until the user selects one of the products (Patches, lapel pins ,Challenge Coins). Same thing with the quantity drop down box.

    Since you just want to have the words "Products" and "Quantity" to show in the two drop-down fields, I suggest you make those texts as "Empty Option Text" and not include those as options that may not trigger the "required warning message" when selected.

    Here's how:

    First, remove "Products" and "Quantity" as options.

    Notice that after you remove those text from the options, the selected-by-default option is also removed automatically.

    After doing that, go the drop-down field's properties and enable the "Show Text in Empty Option" option and set a text for it.

    I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance regarding this, please feel free to contact us again anytime.


    Thank you.
