Hello all,

I have a drop down list with several options and one text field. Depending on what is in my drop down list I need to validate the text field differently.

For example if I have "Stock" selected in the list, I should have letters in the textfield. If I have "Cash" selected in the list I should have numbers.

I looked at the validwhen validation of validator, but cannot see how to combine it with other validations.

Can anyone assist, thanks,
