Hi everybody,


i am currently working on a nintex form for a sharepoint list and i want to create a validation rule on a single text in order to force input. So i tried the formula isNullOrEmpty({self}) and a message "Please fill in xy" but both does not work.


Can anybody help me?


Best regards

the rule seems correct, if you assigned to the proper text control it should work.


try to change it to a formatting rule with some visual change so that you could see it evaluates correctly.


check all the other rules for their correct syntax and functionality. often syntax problem like missing apostrophee, comma or parenthesis cause problems like this.


check developer console for any errors reported.
