Simple validation of yes/no field

Jump to solution

For some reason, a proper validation of a yes/no checkbox on a form is eluding me. I've created a validation rule of: 

{Self}=="No"
to trigger a message to check the box, but the validation doesn't trigger. I've tried using values of no, No, False, false, FALSE, and even tried coming at it from the other way, e.g. {Self}!="Yes"   
I've verified that the field contents properly get stored as "No" or "Yes".   What gives?

Have you tried the control itself instead of {sefl}

Yes. That's one of probably 50 things I've tried.

Hi Ryk,

Try this (the value is true or false, but the == sign will not work since it boolean)

I’ll be *&#@’ed! That works! It’s crazy that none of the options I tried works though, and I couldn’t find any working solution online.

 

Thanks very much for the assist, and hopefully Google will index this!
