Required attribute

johnadamturnbull

Using FF 3.5.3 and Orbeon 3.7.1.2, I'm getting unexpected results with:

<xforms:bind nodeset="book">
                             <xforms:bind nodeset="title" required="true()"/>
                             <xforms:bind nodeset="author" required="true()"/>
</xforms:bind>

I am able to Save a book record with empty title and/or author fields.

I'm following the tutorial carefully but I note that the example source uses
the XPath "instance('books-instance')/book"). This also fails in my form. My
instance seems correct. Any ideas?

Thanks

Figured it out ... in fact I am not able to save an empty field when
required is true.

But, I'm not getting an alert message from

<xforms:input ref="title">
              <xforms:label>Title</xforms:label>
              <xforms:alert>The title is required</xforms:alert>
 </xforms:input>

Should I be? Or is there another missing piece I should be aware of?

Thanks

Correct. You should not be able to submit an instance if it contains
empty nodes marked as required.

You should be getting an alert in that case. I just test this in an
example, and it is working fine for me. If you still have this
problem, could you submit a simple example that shows this and runs in
the XForms sandbox?
