    I would like the option to have the survey validate fields by page.  This way a user can not get to page 2 until page 1 is correct.

     

    My issue is that a user will skip the line number of page 1 (even though it is required).  Then on page 2 they fill out repeats that inherit the line number from page 1.  When they skip on page 1 all my line numbers in the repeat are blank.  When submitting the user then adds a line number, which makes the repeats orphaned.

     

    Most form programs will not let you go on to page 2 if page 1 is not valid.  I cannot just hide the rest of the form due to the size causing memory issues.

     

    thanks!
