     I will be referring to the following sample:


    The sample validates a textbox to have only 4 digits.

    When I enter wrong data, the validation message is shown. Then, I press "Save" button, validation message is gone + the validator.validate() says it is valid, while data is still wrong.

    Why do I need to call validate() method? Because, I offer the user a form with a Save button, so even if error messages are shown on page, I need to make sure things are valid before saving.

    Notice that, once validate() says the form is valid, now the textbox has the "k-valid" class. Hence, even if I enter wrong data again, the validation message won't be shown anymore!


    Appreciate your assistance.

    Hi Bilal,

    This is caused by the fact that in the button click handler a new Kendo Validator instance is created and then this instance is validated. Instead, you should get the already existing Validator instance, similar to the following:

    $("button").on("click", function(e) {
      var validator1 = $("body").data("kendoValidator");
