Conditional Field If Selected Dropdown Contains A Value

I need to make a field required based on another dropdown selection.   I have it working on the Required property, but I am wondering if there is a way to search if the Selected.Value contains a word versus if it is equal to an exact value?


For instance, if my choice values are:

- White Tiger

- Black Tiger

- Leopard

- Cheetah

I would like to target just the Tiger options.   Instead of:   DataCardValue1.Selected.Value = "White Tiger"   would it be  "Tiger" in DataCardValue1.Selected.Value ?


I need to make it conditional if the selected value contains the word "Tiger."

@illmatic IsMatch would be a great function in this scenario.


IsMatch(DataCardValue1.Selected.Value, "Tiger", Contains & IgnoreCase )
