I have a form with a section with 3 fields: Name, First name and Date of birth.
The 3 fields are not mandatory. But when the name is filled in, I would like the first name and date of birth to be mandatory as well.

How to solve this problem?
Can I implement a control on the next page button?

here is a solution.

Please go to date of birth field->Propertis->Validation->check Custom and put:
function ff_dateofbirthfield_validation(element, message)
   var name=ff_getElementByName('nameofNamefield').value;
   var calendar=element.value;
   if(name != '') {
if (message=='') message = "Please enter a birth date.\n"
        return message;
    } // if
return '';
} // ff_dateofbirthfield_validation
Please replace :
-dateofbirthfield with name of calendar for date (not title)
-nameofNamefield with name of field for Name (not title)

If name if empty then date of birth is not required, but when someone put name then date of birth is required

If you need more help let me know
