Required field validation works well when there is more of a checkbox available to select, but when there is only one available checkbox validation does not work.
This error also results if more fields to further validate the checkbox, validation is not performed, since the javascript checkbox is not correct.

To solve the problem in checkbox validation with a single option, you must modify the file formcheckbox.php located in the / root / class / xoopsform directory.

We must replace the line 241 (in the XOOPS version 2.5.0) that contains:
return NWLINE "var hasChecked = false; var checkBox = myform.elements['{$eltname}'];" "for ( var i = 0; i < checkBox.length; i++ ) { if (checkBox[i].checked == true) { hasChecked = true; break; } }" "if (!hasChecked) { window.alert("{$eltmsg}"); checkBox[0].focus(); return false; }";

by
return NWLINE "var hasChecked = false; var checkBox = myform.elements['{$eltname}']; if (checkBox.length) {for (var i = 0; i < checkBox.length; i++) {if (checkBox[i].checked == true) {hasChecked = true; break;}}}else{if (checkBox.checked == true) {hasChecked = true;}}if (!hasChecked) {window.alert("{$eltmsg}");if (checkBox.length) {checkBox[0].focus();}else{checkBox.focus();}return false;}";


This is because if there is only one option the element is not an array.
We must first check if the length is not null to determinate if there is only one or more options in the checkbox.

I'm not able to reproduce it, I'm using this script to test it:
<?php
include 'mainfile.php';
include 
'header.php';
xoops_load('xoopsformloader');
$form = new XoopsThemeForm('Form''form''testform.php');
$checkbox = new XoopsFormCheckBox('Check Caption''check');
$checkbox->addOption(0'Yes');
$checkbox->addOption(1'No');
$checkbox->addOption(2'Maybe');
$form->addElement($checkboxtrue);

$checkbox4 = new XoopsFormCheckBox('Check Caption2''check2');
$checkbox4->addOption(0'Yes');
$form->addElement($checkbox4true);


$checkbox2 = new XoopsFormSelect('Select Caption2''select2'null3);
$checkbox2->addOption(0'Yes');
$checkbox2->addOption(1'No');
$checkbox2->addOption(2'Maybe');
$form->addElement($checkbox2true);

$checkbox3 = new XoopsFormSelect('Select Caption3''select3');
$checkbox3->addOption(0'Yes');
$checkbox3->addOption(1'No');
$checkbox3->addOption(2'Maybe');
$form->addElement($checkbox3true);

$form->addElement(new XoopsFormDhtmlTextArea('Text'"text"), true);

$editor = new XoopsFormEditor('Text2''text2', array('editor' => 'DhtmlTextarea'));
$form->addElement($editortrue);

$editor2 = new XoopsFormEditor('Text3''DhtmlTextarea', array('name' => 'text3'));
$form->addElement($editor2true);

$button = new XoopsFormButton('Submit''submit''Submit button''submit');
$form->addElement($button);

$form->display();

include 
'footer.php';
?>


Is it browser related? What code are you using?

$button = new XoopsFormButton('Submit''submit''Submit button''submit'); 
$form->addElement($button); 

$form->display(); 

include 
'footer.php'
?>


Test results:
With the original code operation of XOOPS 2.5.0 the operation code in different browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome) is as follows:
Pressing Submit without filling any field displays the validation error of the first checkbox (multiple) and position the cursor in the field with error (works fine).
Selecting an option in the first checkbox and pressing submit without filling anything else, shows validation error in the second checkbox, but send or reset the form.

With the modified code in XOOPS 2.5.0 is the correct operation in both checkbox and with different browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome).

Thanks

Hello,

The same problem is still playing the xoops version 2.5.1a

The problem occurs when there is a checkbox form with only one option and that is required.

This option is used for example to validate the privacy policy in a contact form (to comply with European legislation on data protection).

The solution is the same as proposed above for XOOPS 2.5.0.

It would be interesting in the future version 2.5.2 was resolved.
