I have a tab with a portal I have set the date and amount fiels to always validate and require not empty. However, they only validate when leaving the parent record. How do I get them to validate immediately on leaving the field?
Try using OnObjectExit set on the portal object to perform a script.
may be sufficient, or you may find you can get a better interface design going if the script specifically checks the required fields fo the current portal row and throws up a custom dialog if a required field is empty.
