make field required based on another field using behaviours plugin bug?

my jira version is 4.4.1,behaviours plugin version is 0.5.0

1. there are two fields:'ToolType' and 'Description'.

'ToolType' is of Cascading Select type , and it has set its first default value as Camera,the second default value is not set.

'Description' is of Text Field type.

2. i want to make 'Description' required when 'ToolType' select value Camera

i wrote the following code

FormField tl = getFieldById("customfield_11500")
FormField des = getFieldById("customfield_11501")
if (tl.getValue().contains('Camera')){
 des.setRequired(true)
}else{
 des.setRequired(false)
}

problem one:

on create screen,'Description' is not required,although 'ToolType' has default value Camera.

problem two:

when choose LCD as 'ToolType' value, 'Description' is not required. click 'Description' text box, it is still not required as expected.

while once i have choosed Camera as 'ToolType',of course 'Description' is shown required.

then i choose LCD,'Descrption' is shown unrequired as expected.but when i click the 'Description' text box.it is shown required !!! and later 'Description' will display required as long as it is clicked ,no matter what 'ToolType' is chosen.

> if(tl.getValue().contains('Camera')){

Log to your console t1.getValue(). As it's a cascading select you are probably getting a map or a list. But if you add some debug either you will figure it out or I will be able to.

FormField jl = getFieldById("customfield_11500")
FormField des2 = getFieldById("description")
FormField des = getFieldById("customfield_11501")
if (jl.getValue().contains('Camera')){
 des.setRequired(true)
 des2.setFormValue(jl.getValue()+"\nfirst\n"+jl.getValue().contains('Camera'))
}else{
 des.setRequired(false)
 des2.setFormValue(jl.getValue()+"\nsecond\n"+jl.getValue().contains('Camera'))
}

my step:

create issue

choose LCD,desc2 shows 'LCD,' .click the 'Description' text box,it is not required.

then choose Camera,desc2 shows 'Camera,' .'Description' is required.

choose LCD,desc2 shows 'LCD,' click the 'Description' text box,it is required.

anyone can git any idea??

What's the question? I don't understand your comment above, and I don't see the debug lines I recommended.
