Hello,

To make this work for your form, replace all instances of criteria with the Name of your checkbox group element.
Other than that, replace 4 with the number of checkboxes that you have in the checkbox group.

The code has to look like this:
function ff_yourcheckboxgroupname_validation(element, message)
{
var checkboxes = JQuery("[name=\"ff_nm_yourcheckboxgroupname[]\"]:checked");
if(checkboxes.length != number of ckeckboxes){
    return message;
}
return '';
} // ff_yourcheckboxgroupname_validation

Let me know whether you have managed to set this for your form.
If you have more questions, feel free to post on our forums.

Regards,

Mihaela

I'm having trouble with this. I think I might be adding it in the wrong place.

My checkbox group name is "Consent".
It has two checkboxes.

my code is
function ff_Consent_validation(element,message)
{
var checkboxes = JQuery("[name=\"ff_nm_Consent[]\"]:checked");
if(checkboxes.length != 2){
    return message;
}
return '';
} // ff_Consent_validation

I've tried it in the scripts panel for initialise and for submit.
I've tried it in the submit pieces panel, but that doesn't like JS.

Where should it go? Does I need ff_nm_ in my code above?

The form submits as normal.

Hello,

Please try to use the following code instead of the one that you were using:
function ff_Consent_validation(element, message)
{   var checkboxes = JQuery("[name=\"ff_nm_Consent[]\"]:checked");
    if (checkboxes.length != 2) {
        if (message=='') message = "Please check all checkboxes.\n"
        ff_validationFocus(element.name);
        return message;
    } // if
    return '';
} // ff_Consent_validation

Go to Properties of the "Consent" element and scroll down. In the Validation section check the Required checkbox and set the validation Type to Custom. Then in the code area that appears, put the above suggested code.

Let me know whether it works for your form after you do the suggested change.

Regards,

Mihaela
