mandatory file on update

mandatory file on update

I would like to make the update page have a mandatory requirement for the upload photo field. I understand how to use the behaviors built in to DW.

I have a hidden field that the upload is bound to and it works fine. But it doesnt seem to see the default file value on the hidden field as meeting the "required".

<input name="Photo_1" type="hidden" id="Photo_1" value="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory_tbl['Photo_1']; ?>" />

<input name="Update" type="image" id="Update" onclick="MM_validateForm('Stock_Number2','','R','VIN','','R','Make','','R','Model','','R','Year','','RinRange1895:2100','Price','','RisNum','Ext_Color','','R','Int_Color','','R','Mileage','','R','description','','R','Photo_1','','R');return document.MM_returnValue" value="Update" src="../WA_DataAssist/images/Slate/Modular_update.gif" alt="Update"  />

any suggestions

this is not needed

default file setting that is used by the File Upload behavior is used when no file is uploaded.

it is in place to force the server file name variable to have a value if no file is uploaded.
