attachments custom validation

Question asked by waltont on Jun 29, 2016

I have need for very custom validation on an attachment field.

 

We have a series of cascading drop down menus that make the attachment field visible based on the selections. When the conditions that make the attachments visible I want to require an attachment. When the attachments are not visible, I don't want attachments to be required.

 

Anyone have a good way to go about setting this up? I don't see any way to do this with any of the out of the box functions and validation doesn't seem to work with rules either. I put a real simple condition like "IsEmptyOrNull" in the conditional validation field, and if I open the form initially then click save that validation kicks off, invalidates the form and puts my custom error message up, but the moment I select one of the cascading drop down options, the form "refreshes" and when I try to save the form, the attachment validation passes (even though I have not attached anything).
