    Check for Required fields before Save

      Hi,

      The above form has two text fields ,a radio button group and a drop down set as required fields, there is no submit button as users will save it using menu commands and place it in a common folder.

      I need to run a check that when they try to save the form , all the required fields should be filled in else it should throw and error message and set focus to the empty field.

       

      Tried a lot of codes and different styles from last two days..no luck..because all the code works only if the user tabs in the required field else not.

       

      Regards

      Kapil

          You can only prevent a file from being saved if it is done through a button that you've created. You can't prevent a user from saving the file if they use the built-in Save command.

          What you can do, though, is use a script to do one or more of the following:

          - Show an error message

          - Reset the form fields being the file is saved (so it is saved blank)

          - Show an error message on the file itself (like a large text saying "INCOMPLETE" or something like that)

          - Cover the contents of the file

          - etc.
