Stepper validation not working with SELECT elements


Topic: Stepper validation not working with SELECT elements

softcon pro premium asked 5 months ago

Expected behavior

When applying "required" to a SELECT element. SELECT elements with a value of nothing (where default OPTION value="") should be seen as invalid, as is the case with standard HTML5 form validation. The stepper should flag this item as invalid (required), and not move to the next step.

Actual behavior

Stepper validation allows SELECT elements with a value of nothing (where OPTION value="").

Hello, you can do something like this to your first option. Users won't be able to select it, but initially it will force placeholder to show.

                    <option hidden value=""></option>
