Joomla! version: 3.2.4

Wanted to start with the new bfsurvey component.

I have a master question which decides the following conditions.
I can use the new HIDE Show Features and works really well.
Only thing is when i mark the question as mandatory i cannot
submit the form since the question which is hidden is not answered.
Shouldn´t be that questions which are hidden be ignored?
In my example i created a one page form have not tested others.
In addition i would be really nice to get a message
"Please fill in bla bla" instead of just doing nothing.
Any info would be highly appreciated

Hi Wolfgang,
Sorry for the delayed response.

The show/hide question literally does that, it does not alter the fact that a question is mandatory or not. I never really intended for hidden questions to be marked as mandatory, so I haven't implemented any code to make all hidden questions not mandatory. How important is this functionality?

NP its not that urgent. I just wanted to evaluate the new version, if its useable
for production, yet.
Well the importance depends if one can solve the problem in some other way.
What i wanted is that my first question decides about the next questions.
Naturally questions related to the answer No for the first question should not
be shown for the yes branch. So thats why i used that hidden functionality.
BUT they are mandatory after the first question was asked.
The easiest way to implement would be to ignore the mandatory flag if the question
is hidden, IMHO.
