I have a form with a Submit button and one mandatory field that has code to validate format of date and to keep focus on field until correct format is entered.

If the user clicks on the Submit button without clicking in the Date Field first, the form is sent.  I want to insert a presubmit event that will check the mandatory field prior to sending the form.

I used the following code but after it alerts the user that data is missing, i get an error that says Submit Cancelled and the form is not sent.  I am using an Email Submit button - nothing in the url field and PDF selected.

I would also like to add a subject line and body to message prior to sending.

//Check if all the mandatory fields are filled in or not
if(isMandatoryFieldMissed.value == "0"){
this.resolveNode("#event") = "";

else{"One or more of the required fields were missing data before submitting.");
