HTML5 Input Required Attribute

Postby ravoras » Thu Apr 19, 2012 11:06 am

Hey Guys,

I came across the 'required' attribute for input tags in HTML5, and it just super handy.

But I was wondering, if there is workaround for dependent inputs using just the required attribute.


Say I have a select box, which has certain entries. Depending on the user selection, the user may have to fill out extra information (which is required).

I know how to do this with JS etc. But since I came across the required attribute I am curious, if this is achievable. That would be super!


Best Regards

With required attribute you still would need to use JS.
Since you would be depending on select box value to chose where to add/remove required attribute to/from other input elements.

That's my conclusion after reading HTML5 <input> required Attribute and HTML5 <input> Tag
