how can I make the field with checkboxes required?
Best regards,


The checkboxes is one of Types fields you can not set as required. If you need to make this required in CRED, I would recommend you to use CRED API to achieve that:

The cred_form_validate hook should do that.


Why only for this type it is not possible to set up the required field? I've chosen Types to could set up the forms without coding, I have no idea how to use CRED API and hooks.


That's because the logic is very hard for this kind of field, so we moved this as feature request to a future release.

Unfortunately, for checkboxes, you must use some PHP code. Using the hook I provided for you, you must replace $fields['my_field']['value'] with the name of your checkboxes field.

Please let me know if you are satisfied with my answer and if I can help you with any other related question.
