Server Side Validation Show If not working

I have a form that sends an email using UE which works!

I want to make all fields 'required' or 'email' with an error message at the top of the form that relates to each area. I also have a Show If section if all the validations pass to say the form was sent.

I have added this validation however when the form is blank, no email is sent, but no error messages are displayed.

When the form is completed correctly, the email is sent which would suggest the validation is working! However, no success message is displayed.

The last thing that I would like is that the form fields that were validated as correct would remain populated with the data entered into the form.

I have attached the page for you to see.

the validation show if behaviors are nested.

The failure show if behaviors are nested inside the success show if behavior.

the success error message is nested inside a failure behavior.

Remove all of the validation Show if behaviors from the page and re apply them.

When applying the validation show if behavior, make sure to select only the text that should displayed for that one show if.

to retain validated information, set the initial value of each form element to use the corresponding binding from the validated entries binding group.

Oooops - Thanks!

I have sorted out the nesting issue as suggested and have managed to link the form fields as suggested all of which works well!

I had hoped that a success validation with all fields selected would show a thank you message after the email had been sent, however the page loads with no success message.

Should a message be displayed or am I going about this the wrong way?

in universal email, set the go to page to go to the contact.php but passing in a query string variable:

$GoToPage = "contact.php?emailed=true";

then use an if statement to show the success message:

<?php if(isset($_GET['emailed']) && $_GET['emailed'] == "true") { ?>

the email was sent
<?php ?>
