How to validate option lists?

User moon_1411 2014-01-15 06:20:43

The validation script doesn't work on my option list fields (I have selected "Required" in the field configuration). I have set a first option without any value with the name "--- Select ---", but when I look into the generated code, there is still a value associated with this option but the "mv_option" is empty, so I guess that the script should look first if the mv_option has a value, and if not, display an error message, but it doesn't seems to be working that way. Do I have to write an extra script in the JavaScript section? If so, could you give me the code to write?

Thank you!

Option List is special for required validation. You should add to 'Css class' in your field in backend: cb_option_non_first
This generates a validate error if first option is selected. If you want to change message, you should change 'OPTION_REQUIRED' property in language fields.

Hope this helps. Regards,
