Requiring Variables

Question asked by Michael Dekoning on Mar 27, 2009

We have information that we want to be required for some of our documents in EPDM. We enforce this in the data card by setting the Editbox Min value to 1. However, if a user uses drag and drop or copy-paste to add a file, this validation won't work. We looked at making the variable mandatory, but this requires the user to enter the information for any file configuration that doesn't have this data. For example, we have DWG files that do not use paper space so the data is there for the Model but not for Layout1.

Any ideas on how to do this? I've put in an enhancement request to allow a variable to be mandatory by configuration but don't know if or when this might be implemented.

Thanks,
Mike
