After tearing the drywall off of one side of a hollow wall, I rewired the exposed area with a couple new circuits and 3-way switches. My question is, I have about a 3-4 foot section of wire coming up through the floor(bottom of wall), and to a switch box, running inbetween the wall studs. How often/does the nm-cable need to be tacked/braced when it's ran vertically, and will eventually be covered with drywall again? Please let me know if you need more info. Thank You!!

Nonmetallic-sheathed cable is required to be secured by staples, cable ties, straps, hangers, or similar fittings designed and installed so as not to damage the cable at intervals not exceeding 4-1/2 ft and within 12 in. of every cabinet, box, or fitting.

Flat cables are not allowed to be stapled on edge.
