Required Default Value Not Set

Donny Houck asked on May 24, 2018 20:13

Using Kentico 10.0: I have a simple field, call it "Are you 18+" and I want it to be a Boolean (Yes/No) data type.

I also need it to be Required, but I want the user to specifically tell me if they are 18+. AKA actually force them to select either Yes or No. When I check the "Required" I lose the option to select not set as the Default Value.

Any ideas?

Do you mean you want the 'no' value to be selected or none of the values to be selected? Either way I was able to replicated both instances with the 'required' value selected. Could you take a screenshot of the form and upload it?

There is a trick with this. Set the field to not required first then select no in the radio button list. Then make the field required. Then save. That should do the trick.

@Regis - not quite. I need the radion buttons to default to "No Value", as in neither Yes or No is selected. Making it a required field would force a user to select either Yer or No...which doesnt appear to be an option.

@Peter - I would have preferred a Dropdown but the request is for Radio Buttons. The feel its a more clean option to provide a visual Yes or No. Im not sure how much wiggle room I'll have on changing that unless the functionality of Radion Buttons doesnt exist

@Brenden - that doesnt work. Currently the field is not required. When I select "No" and hit Save, then mark it as required and save, the value is "Yes" on the form.

Thanks though!
