Forminator dropdown not working as expected

I am trying to put a dropdown selector with the required option. But even if the dropdown is selected Form still gives error “This field is required. Please select a value”. How can I solve this?

    Hello there Neil Batchelor,

    hope you’re doing well today! :slight_smile:

    I’ve got some feedback from our developers and it seems that this is happening because the field was “required” but the users dropdown had no value, only labels. Hence always resulting in empty values. Some additional validations have added that check if the select field is required and the value is empty on the backend. This is going to be included in a future release, I’ve already asked our developers if there’s a solid plan on the exact version number of it, so I can keep you posted.

    Warm regards,

    Dimitris

    Hey Neil :slight_smile:

    There’s some more information on this from our developers and it seems that the solution here is not using empty values as we need to allow them to be empty (there’s also a notice that we allow them to be empty). So you can just add some value in there and this should start working again.

    Take care,

    Dimitris
