Hello,

This code enables validation in other fields when the user types something in the salesPercent6 field.

if (salesPercent6.text != "") {
mx.validators.Validator.enable( this, "form1.salesRep6");
}

However if a user enters a blank space in the salesPercent6 field the code will enable the validation in the other fields.
I've tried:
if (salesPercent6.text != ''){...
if (salesPercent6.text != null) {...
if (salesPercent6.text != NaN) {...
if(salesPercent6.text.replace(" ","").length != 0){..
if(salesPercent6.text.replace(" ","").length != -1){

but nothing seems to work, is there a way that when the user enter a blank space in the salesPercent6 the validation won't occur in other fields?

thanks!!
