At the moment to make an attribute conditionally mandatory I am using Business Rules to generate Error Messages but this only helps the user when they come to save the object.

It would be useful if it were possible to give a visual indicator to the user that can be switched on when the condition comes into play and off when it is no longer applicable.

You can provide the conditional indicator yourself with dynamic rules.

Here is an example of a form that turns a filter criteria box yellow if it is used & also displays the "Clear Filters" link only if one of the filters is used.

Agreed that is a suitable work around. Maybe my request would be better worded more generally as access to BO Attribute settings via Business Rules as using the Conditional formatting creates multiple visual metaphors and cues (unless you don't use the Value Must Be Provided checkbox at all and instead rely on Conditional formatting).

From an entirely untested point of view it seems that there are more keystrokes and interactions to using conditional formatting than would be required via a business rule - I'm just mentally thinking it out, I haven't actually tested it.
