  1. Hi bob..
    I have a Requirement : If Field 'Record Type 1' = 'Parts' the 'Summary' Field input is mandatory. Both fields are in two diff page block sections.

    I am able to get the error message but it is not working as desired. even on the 'Record Type 1'= 'End User' it is showing Validation error on Summary.

    function setRequired(){
    if(document.getElementById('{!$Component.form1.block1.thePageBlockSection.Summary}').value == '')

    Thank you !! Please let me know if you have questions..
