Country Dropdown required bug?

    I've got a Country bulk added dropdown that has been set to be required. I've also added the first value as, "Please select Country/Region"; It's not the selected value of default.

    When the user doesn't select a country/region and submits the form, I am expecting an alert message to prompt them to select a required field. However, the form simply submits. Anything I am missing on this?

  2. Your first value is a valid selection which is why it passes the required field validation because it has a value. You can fix this by:

    - Edit your drop down field
    - Check the "Enable Values" checkbox above the drop down choices
    - Clear the value for the "Please select..." choice so it has no value
    - See this screenshot: http://grab.by/aeg1

    If a choice has no value, it won't validate as having a valid selection as far as required field validation goes.
