Sorry, but where you said ‘the first check mandatory is working’ that implies there are more than one. but from what you are saying now what sort of fields are involved ? not all of them WILL show with a red border initially so it may be better to look at handling this differently.. either setting up a check mandatory script for each field one after the other, where you could define seperate messages in each, even present some visual tips to users what fields are required (a red * for instance can be useful in this regard as its considered a common way to show ‘this field is required)

and if these fields are on different pages of your form run the check mandatory action on a page by page basis rather than all on a final ‘submit’ button where your users can be sent back to earlier pages

but also.. READ ONLY fields – your users can’t enter any data into these fields in this state so even if they were to be ‘not answered’ how are your users then going to enter in data to them where they are ‘read only’ ?
