I have a colour dynamic list menu with a cart button.
The Cart product image is dictated by the thumbnail image in the colour table.
If I add to cart without selecting a colour it will add to cart with $ value but no colour value.
I would either like to be able to select a default colour in the "Value" part of the dynamic list where I ask the customer to "select colour" I have tried a number of ways but I never get the cart to be able to access the thumbnail for the image,
The other method would be to make the list value "not equal to no choice", The Preferred method, (validate) But the Spry validate message completely destroys the table setup.
Is there a WA validation that can be applied to the dynamic list? to ensure customer makes a selection??
Thank you

You should use a sever side validation if you want to ensure that a user makes a selection. You can apply the server validations with either the Validation Toolkit or CSS Form Builder. Either one would allow you to add the server side validations. This way you can add in a required type validation for the select list to ensure that the user has made a selection.

You should also be able to add in a default value, if you have some text that says 'please select one' you can set the value for this choice to be the default value you would like to assign. What is the result that you get when you do this?
