[Pro] Menu/list inspector options

What is the “Required” check box in the menu/list inspector palette supposed to do? I’m using a list in conjunction with a Mal’s form, and I assumed it would prevent an item from being added to the cart unless a “variation” were selected. I have tried leaving the initial field blank. I have tried un-checking the “initially selected” button. If that’s not the way to accomplish that, is there another way?

Thanks, David

No - I dont think you can implement it that way.

Can we see your form online and outline exactly what you want to happen.

Here’s one example. All I want is for the shopper to have to make a selection from the list(s), metal, ring size, before the item can be added to the cart. In other words, that a selection is “required,” but that doesn’t seem to be what is meant by that check box. Unfortunately, neither the Freeway 5 Reference nor the "What’s New in 6’ guide have anything to say about it.

Dont think that this can be done in its standard form - better to have a default item/specification with a label next to it telling the visitor to choose an option (otherwise they get the default metal and size). They of course will have the option to amend/delete at the cart stage.

Not sure if Tim’s action suite can do this FreewayActions.com | Mals E-Commerce Suite

There is also the Validate action suite http://actionsforge.com/projects/view/73-validate-form-suite

Roy Gardiner had this same problem back in 2010 and found:

Freeway’s Support has indicated that the Validate and Validate Extras Actions won’t work with the E-Buy Form. They currently do not have a work around.

That’s still the case. The same thread contained some Java from Walt that I might be able to edit to suit my needs.

Thanks, David
