Argh - gform_pre_render again

  1. dochara

    You may want to merge this into my previous thread, as I thought I'd solved it, but haven't :(

    Problem arises when unsetting a required field - it's still required. So, I need something extra here, but not sure what.

    function sd_hide_or_require_insured($form){
    	$insuredfield = array('Insured');
    	global $post;
    	$needsinsurance = get_post_meta($post->ID,'_sd_prod_insurance',true);
    	if ($needsinsurance==1) {
    		//make the field required  - but how?
    	} else {
    		foreach($form['fields'] as $key=>$field) {
    			if(in_array($field['label'], $insuredfield)) {
    //or alternatively make it not required if value is 0,  as well as unsetting
        return $form;

    Any help really appreciated.

    I figured it out. It requires a two step process:

    1. Unset the field using gform_pre_render if it is not needed
    2. Validate it using if it is needed

    I've posted my code here for anyone who is interested.
