Default Make product options required?

I have two attribute groups: size and color and neither change the price or inventory.

Is there a way to make these options required? eg, so the user HAS to select a size and color before adding to cart? Otherwise, it's easy for the user to forget and order wrong size/ color.

Also, is there a way to have simple options with no variants; eg, I don't need inventory control or price difference on the options, but I have to create variants for every option possibility before the product is available for sale.

Did you ever find out if product options can be required? I also need to make them required.

In version 4.x, option validation is a stock and very important part of product setup.

and

Is this functionality missing from version 5.x?

I was hoping to avoid having to write any JavaScript to validate but can if that is the only way. I was just hoping for a "required" checkbox in the product option. I just updated my signature - I am still on 4.x also.

This is very easily achieved with html5/css3 without any js scripts, just pure html code. Of course XC is not even close to be html5/css3 coded.... maybe in 5-6 years...

So your only option right now with stock XC is to use js validation code as Jeremy suggested
