I have two text boxes and I want to validate that one of them was filled in.

<input type="TextBox" name="TextBoxEmailAddress1" ng-model="emailAddress1"/>
<input type="TextBox" name="TextBoxEmailAddress2" ng-model="emailAddress2"/>

Thanks!

do you mean a user must provide an email but it doesn't matter which field they use?

why not just make the first one required and the second one optional?

I can't change the requirement.  I need to validate that one of the two is filled in. It's a lot more complicated that my simple example.  I can't change the requirement at all.

<div ng-app="App" ng-controller="Ctrl">
    <form name="form" class="css-form" novalidate>
        <input type="email" name="TextBoxEmailAddress1" ng-model="emailAddress1" ng-required="!emailAddress2" />
        <br />
        <input type="email" name="TextBoxEmailAddress2" ng-model="emailAddress2" ng-required="!emailAddress1" />
