Often a cabinet will have multiple document types, and the requirements for these different document types become complex went fields must be made "Required". In other words one document type may have a field which is required, and another doctype doesn't even use the field at all. I am wondering if a Mask could be used in a dialog to force an entry.
Above are some Regular Expressions I have tried and failed to prevent storage. Any thoughts on this?
Instead of this Mask idea, in the past I've employeed a different tactic. I have hidden the "not used" fields, but automatically populated with a single character. It works, but isn't easy to maintain all these store dialogs.
If only the customer would accept multiple cabinets, but this customer has over two dozen departments, and each department has mulitple doctypes with their own requirements.
