Does anyone know of a way to make the comment box mandatory? The question type I am using is "List With Comment." I thought this would be simple/easy task, but I can't find answers anywhere (yet!).

Past below code in question text source.If it will not work then give me survey link and question ID.

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$errorDiv = $('<br><div class = "errormandatory"></div>')
$('span.questionhelp:eq(0)').append($errorDiv)
$('button#movenextbtn').click(function(){
if($('textarea').val().trim() == "" ){
$('div.errormandatory').text('Please provide comment in box')
return false;
}
});
});
</script>

I know this is old so I hope you might still be able to help me. I tried the code you provided and it seems to work expect the error message "Please provide comment in box" shows on the first question on the page and not the question this relates to. Thank you.

I can help but I would need a link to a test survey with the question where you want to use this code.

Thank you for your quick response, but I was able to correct the problem by changing

$('span.questionhelp:eq(0)').append($errorDiv)

to

$('span.questionhelp:eq(4)').append($errorDiv)
