How can I make a PEOPLE CONTROL outline in red when this field is required at save?
notice how the other fields automatically outline in red----why doesn't the POPLE control have this option?
Do you know how to make it outline in red?
See the example below where I attempted to save this form and got the error messages at the top of the form in addition to two of the required fields to be outlined in red, but the People control has not red outline.
I will also send a screen shot of my PEOPLE control settings.
Thanks so much for your response.
The Class Attendee field is a REQUIRED field according to my SharePoint List Settings.
I will also include a screen shot of the validation section of the control from the form.
Does everything look ok to you?
Do you have any other suggestions as to why the field is not outlining in red?

Unfortunately I don't have Nintex forms in front of me so I can't test the behaviour, but is it because you've got Custom Validation selected, but no custom validation function in there? Setting the custom validation setting to no, should still mean this is a required field and will produce the error message you've placed above it, but the form won't look for a custom validation function, that in this case, doesn't exist.
I have taken away the custom validation, it still doesn’t outline in red…..any other suggestions??

If the control has a validation rule applied or the column is a required field it should be displaying a red box around the control.
Below I have a control with a validation rule and a required control below:
Sounds like something is going on either with this form or the control in the form. I'd recommend testing this behavior on a new list/form to confirm this behavior is consistent on the farm.
Also, have you upgraded to the newest build?
Do you mind taking a screen shot of the controls where I can see your settings?
This seems like such a simple task but its simply not working for me.
Everything is out of the box here.
There first control only has a validation rule applied to it. The validation rule is simply checking if the control is null or empty.
The other control is simply a required field in the SharePoint list. You can tell when a column is a required field due to the "*" next to the control.
This could be due to any custom styling on the form or it could be simply related to that control. I'd recommend retrying this in a new form to see if the behavior persists.
