Hide "This Question is mandatory" after start typing

1 year 3 weeks ago #184169 by cmnxyz
Hey Guys,

i have the following Problem: I have a mandatory free text question. When I dont answer the free text and wanna continue to next page the standard message is displayed: "This question needs to be answered." So far, so good.

When i begin to answer the question the message "This question needs to be answered." is still displayed, which might distract users. So i want to hide this message as soon as users start to type.

Is there any chance to do this on runtime?

Thank you! :)

Disable AJAX mode in the survey theme options and add this script to the question source:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
	$(document).on('ready pjax:scriptcomplete',function(){
		// Listener on the input
		$('#question{QID} input:text').on('keyup change', function(e) {
			if($.trim($(this).val()) != '') {
				$('#question{QID} .ls-question-mandatory.text-danger').hide();
