I have User Forms [v0.2.0] installed and have created a contact form.
There is a dropdown with 2 options. The first option which is also by default selected displays a simple required textarea box to submit a message.
When the second option in the dropdown is selected it hides the required textarea and show multiple other required fields.
When either option is selected since some of the required fields are hidden and no value has been entered the form will not allow to submit.
How can I have it so that the hidden required fields aren't required anymore so that the form can submit.

Yea its a bit of a limitation with the module, only work around is to make fields which are conditional not required. I think a ticket on open.silverstripe.org to look into this but the whole validation / rules gets pretty complex really quickly!

Thanks for the reply. It looks like the form will have no required fields anymore.
Here's another solution let me know if this can work. Can I populate all the fields with a value? So for example the hidden required fields have a default value or something so even though they're hidden and not field in they'll still populate and validate therefore submitting the form.

Again, sadly you cannot specify a default value yet. Its on the todo list

Thanks for your reply and love the User Form module.
Can't wait to see if in the future these specific form features can be added to the module.
