I have some issues with my form.
Goal : I want to set up a mandatory field a dropdown when a specific choice value is selected, same thing when I select another choice.
My choice control have 2 choices : A and B for example.
In the same repeating section, I have my dropdown(e.g dd) and my textbox (e.g tb).If I chose A, tb is hidden and dd displayed. If I chose B, tb is displayed and dd is hidden.
Can you help me to set up a mandatory rule ?

Hello Theo Delsante -
This is entirely doable using Nintex Forms and some simple validation rules. I provided an export of what I did so that you can follow along if needed.
First off, I created this on a list with the following columns:
The form will require that a selection is made from Dropdown when "Dropdown Required" is selected from Choice. Conversely, it will require that something be in Textbox if "Textbox Required" is selected from Choice.
I dropped the Dropdown and Textbox controls into panels so that it is easier to manage the rules that are applied to them. On the Dropdown panel, I placed the following rule:
This will Hide the panel if "Dropdown Required" is not selected. As you can guess, setup a similar rule on the Textbox panel to do the same thing like so:
This takes care of hiding and showing the controls based on the Choice selection. Now to add in the validations.
Select the Dropdown control and add the following rule:
This will check Choice to see if it equals "Dropdown Required" AND if Dropdown is empty. If TRUE, it will cause validation and not allow the user to submit:
Now for the Textbox control. Same approach; select the control and add the following validation rule:
Again, it will check Choice to see if it equals "Textbox Required" AND if Textbox is empty. If TRUE, it will cause validation and not allow the user to submit:
From here you can drop these controls into a repeating section and alter the message that will appear.
Hope this helps!
Is this also possible to apply the below to multiple fields dependant on the a choice. This formula has worked for a single field but I am struggling to apply this to multiple fields dependant on choice.
For example, If the choice is made for Textbox Required then a number of Text Boxes would require some input.
In my scenario, I am creating a digital request form for user management so if the 'New User' selection is made from the Dropdown then I need the 'New User Name' / 'Job Title' / 'Department' / 'Location' fields to be completed.
Further to this if the selection for 'Change User' is chosen from the Dropdown then 'Existing User Name' / 'Job Title' / 'Department' / 'Location' fields would need to be mandatory etc.
Thank you in advanced.
