The out-of-the-box designation for a required field is the asterisk. Does anyone know of a way to change the field appearance to make required fields more obvious? Our business users are asking us for this and I'm not sure there's anything we can do.
Good Day. If you need set field required in depend on selected value in other fiel you can use advanced rule (only for 7.5).Else in version from 7.1. and... you can set field required on tan "status dependities" in request type in workbensh. or additional inf see demand CG. Good Luck
The question really wasn't how to make a field required, we know how to do that, it's really more of finding out if there is a way to make the appearance change to make it more obviuos which field is required. I know the dialog pops-up and says that a field is required, our business users have asked if there's a way to make it even more clear that a field is required by changing it's appearance - making it BOLD or red or something like that. Make sense?
Jamie, this is possible in 7.5 by using a request type rule. You have the ability to dynamically change the field styles (bold, field background color, etc) by defining those styles in a .css and calling them with a setFieldStyle() statement in your request type rules.
See the 7.5 DM Config Guide, advanced rules section for more info.
I think the issue would be the syntax of the "setFieldStyle" statement - when doing this, you're calling a jsp function, not SQL, so you don't need the "select", "from", or "dual" - you would just specify it like... "setFieldStyle( )"
