    Validate required fields with Save Button

    I have two buttons "Save and Submit". The Save button, save the form in List without sending an e-mail to Approve. This form has 10 required fields. If I don't fill this required fields when I click in save button the form doesn't validate if the fields are fill or not.... I'm using rules and Custom Code: public void btnSave_Clicked(object sender, ClickedEventArgs e) { WriteEventLog("Submitting the form"); // If the submit operation is successful, set //e.CancelableArgs.Cancel = false; // Write your code here. requestID = 0; filename = ""; requestStatus = "Draft"; // fetch the form name String formname = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:formName", this.NamespaceManager).Value; String currentYear = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:EventDetails/my:requestYear", this.NamespaceManager).Value; String shortName = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:EventDetails/my:shortsubject", this.NamespaceManager).Value; String eventDate = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:EventDetails/my:event_date", this.NamespaceManager).Value; String now = DateTime.Now.ToString(); if (this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:fileName", this.NamespaceManager) != null) { filename = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:fileName", this.NamespaceManager).Value; } // Fetch the next ID XPathNavigator idnavigator = this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:requestID", this.NamespaceManager); if (idnavigator != null) { requestID = fetchNextID(formname, currentYear); idnavigator.SetValue(requestID.ToString()); } filename = "Events--" + requestID.ToString("000"); this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:fileName", this.NamespaceManager).SetValue(filename); this.MainDataSource.CreateNavigator().SelectSingleNode("/my:myFields/my:requestStatus", this.NamespaceManager).SetValue(requestStatus); WriteEventLog("All data is ready!"); try { FileSubmitConnection fc = DataConnections["Main submit"] as FileSubmitConnection; fc.Execute(); WriteEventLog("Form has been submitted"); } catch (Exception ex) { WriteEventLog(ex.Message); } } } Rules: Close the form -> When the button is clicked. How can I do validate the required fields with the code? I cannot add the rule "Validation" in Button.

     https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/microsoft.office.infopath.xmlform.errors.aspx - you can get a count of the errors and then stop running your code, alert the user, etc.

    Thanks for your reply :) But can I do this? I need to create a field in "InfoPath" names "CountError" and declare a private class private string ErrorCount { get { return (String)FormState["ErrorCount"]; } set { FormState["ErrorCount"] = value; } } and in my function " public void btnSave_Clicked(object sender, ClickedEventArgs e)" what I need to do? Sorry, but Is my first time with InfoPath and C#.

     I'm sorry, your reply confuses me.

    I'm suggesting that at the very beginning of your save code, you check for errors, using code like that in the link:

    int formErrors = this.Errors.Count;

    Then you can just not run your save code if formErrors > 0.

    I did :) and worked :) XmlForm form = sender as XmlForm; if (form.Errors.Count == 0 ) { Submit the form } else { this.ViewInfos.SwitchView("ValidationError"); } Thanks for you help :)
