Check box and Text box field dependency

Hi,

 

I have a field with check box. If it is ticked, then the user has to fill the text box, else not required.

How can I configure it ?

 

Your help needed.

 

Regards,

Blue

Text Field: Name__c

ChecklBox: D3__c

 

Create a validation rule -

 

AND(ISBLANK(Name__c), D3__c =true)

 

If the Checkbox is ticked and user doesn't enter anything in textfield, user will get a error. if checkbox is not ticked, it doesn't matter if user enter anything in textfield or not.

 

To create the validation rule, go to the object and click 'New' under the Validation Rule section. Enter the Rule Name, enter the formula I have highlighted above (make sure to replace Name__c and  D3__c with your field names), enter the Error message, and Save.

You can use a validation rule as if checkbox is true and textbox is null throw a validation error.
