Blank spaces in required text entry field

I have made a text entry field in a form required, but if I type blank spaces, it is considered filled up and I am able to submit the form. Is there anyway I can restrict the form cannot be submitted if required fields have only blank spaces and if possible strip all blank spaces before first non blank character?

you would have to create a custom form and submit button with visibility condition set if not " ".

Hmm is that the only possible solution? I would have hoped Glide would be smart enough when I say required and only blank spaces are provided as input, it should consider the field as empty. @glide is that a feature or a bug?

Technically blank cell means empty and space is a character, so cell is not empty anymore… the only way is to check that cell if it contains other characters than spaces
