    In  normal input boxes I have validation on lost focus and on form submit too.
    However if I turn the input into combobox there is validation only on form submit...

    There is a way to change it?

    Hello Peter,

    The behavior you have described is caused by the fact that our ComboBox widget has two input elements. The original one, to which Kendo Validator  is bound, is  hidden therefore, no blur events are triggered and input is not re-validated. In order to workaround this limitation you may use the ComboBox Change event to trigger form validation manually, as shown in this basic jsFiddle:
