Hi there,

I made 3 drop down menus that are required, but which validation do I select from the library, so that it checks to ensure the user selects one?



Please advise!

Thank you :)
Nader

Hey Nader,

for select-lists you should use the ff_valuenotempty script.
Just make sure that you have a default option without a value as the first option of the select-list, something like this:
0;Please Select;
0;Title 1;value1
0;Title 2;value2
0;Title 3;value3
Regards,
Marko

I'm having trouble with the solution mentioned here.

I have a "select list" element where the user chooses a location. So the list values are:0;Please choose one;did not choose0;Baldwin Memorial Library (Judsonia);Baldwin0;Goff Public Library (Beebe);GoffThen I checked the "Required" checkbox so it will show the red asterisk, and I chose the validation of ff_valuenotempty. See attached screenshot. But when I test it, it lets me submit the form without making a choice from that list.

I am using BreezingForms 1.9 and Joomla 3.9.22.
