Based on replays in this tread: forums.limesurvey.org/forum/can-i-do-thi...array-answers#192662
I had similar situation in a my survey so I set as suggested:
1 an hidden radiobutton choice question and
2 a Equation hidden question
3 the radiobutton question filtered by the first hidden question
and this solve perfectly my needs (this 3th question is mandatory).

The problem now is about this beavior: after i pass over the three Questions above and supposing the user turn back in the survey and change the choice that is the filter criteria when back to the question 3 can totally ignore of make a choice at the answer and can go ahead bypass the mandatory questions!

Of course I think this appen because the first choice is recorded in the survey memory so the survey "think" the answer was done.

Hope to be clear exppsing my issue, have you some suggestion to resolve this particular behavior??

Thanks in advance

This sounds like intended behavior.
If a "user turn back in the survey" the survey is already filled out.
If "question 3" is empty you might have found a bug. To inspect that further you might open a bugticket and provide an example survey with just three questions.

Hi, if you do not do what you are told,,please don't be surprised.

create a (hidden) question of type "multiple" (let's call it M1)

But in your file P2 is an array.
Therefore the equation doesn't work.

P2 has to be a "multiple" question"
Then everything is fine.

Hi Joffm!
Thanks for reply. My stupid mistake!

But tryng the survey you attached to me the behavior don't change related to the mandatory question.

When I pass for the first time throught the first and the second group/Questions I MUST select a radiobutton (mandatory flag). But IF I come back throught group and questions AND change my selection of the first Question (in my example coded with "Data" field selecting another radio button) I can skip the question whitout checking any radio button and going ahead whitout any error message.

How to force this question to be really mandatory every time?

Thanks in advance

But anyway, try to reset the single question in your equation.
Like 
{QCode=""}
