---- Reported by nengard@gmail.com 2010-04-27 20:12:14 ----

When a patron attribute is required it should be in red like other required fields

Does this bug refer to Patron Attribute Types?

---- Additional Comments From nengard@gmail.com 2010-05-01 01:24:00 ----

Yes it does :)

Under what circumstances are patron attributes required?

---- Additional Comments From nengard@gmail.com 2010-05-10 19:34:29 ----

When you create a patron attribute you can say whether it's required or not.  So some libraries have things like student ID or license number that is required. In the example I saw the library had a special identifier they had to use for stats that is required.

The current method for making a patron attribute is a hack, and each possible solution I can think of for this bug is also a hack. I'm changing this to an enhancement request so that we can tackle the issue from the right direction: If we can set a "required" parameter for patron attributes, the interface can directly access that information.

So, the hack that we had to make attributes required doesn't work if you are making attributes branch specific ... so I thought I'd bump this to see if anyone has any other ideas on how to tackle this enhancement.
