Hi Madhu,

I guess you want to show an empty message when the TextBox inside the EditItemTemplate is empty. You can easily achieve this by adding the RequiredFieldValidator .If the input control is empty, no validation functions are called and validation succeeds. Use a RequiredFieldValidator control to require the user to enter data in the input control.Please check the following code snippet.

ASPX:
<EditItemTemplate>                                               
    <asp:CheckBox ID="chkIsActive" runat="server"  Checked = '<%# Eval("IsActiveFlag") %>' />                                               
    <asp:TextBox ID="txtsubSvcName" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("SubServiceName") %>' ></asp:TextBox>
    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator1" ControlToValidate="txtsubSvcName" ErrorMessage="Please enter a valid name" Display="Dynamic" runat="server">*
    </asp:RequiredFieldValidator
    <asp:TextBox ID="txtSvcShortName" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("SubServiceShortName") %>'></asp:TextBox>
</EditItemTemplate>

Thanks,
Princy.

Hello Sir,
              Hope you would be doing well. I am having same issue of validation. But I am not using TemplateColumn in RadGrid. I am just working with GridBoundColumnEditors which got TextBox in insert Mode and edit Mode. I am using InPlace Add and Update approach.

Now what I required is I want to validate all the TextBoxes with different conditions {like email,phone,numbers only, alphabates only etc...}
when ItemCommand is fired....
Can anybody help me out please ?

Hi Mayur,

You can have client side validation as below for a BoundColumn.

ASPX:
<telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ShipCountry" HeaderText="ShipCountry" UniqueName="ShipCountry">
  <ColumnValidationSettings EnableRequiredFieldValidation="true">
   <RequiredFieldValidator ForeColor="Red" ErrorMessage="This field is required"></RequiredFieldValidator>
  </ColumnValidationSettings>
</telerik:GridBoundColumn>

Or you can have serverside validation as follows.

ASPX:
<telerik:GridBoundColumn UniqueName="OrderID" DataField="OrderID" HeaderText="OrderID">
</telerik:GridBoundColumn>
<telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="CustomerID" HeaderText="CustomerID" UniqueName="CustomerID">
</telerik:GridBoundColumn>

C#:
public void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)
    {
        //RequiredFieldValidator
        GridEditableItem item = e.Item as GridEditableItem;
        RequiredFieldValidator validator = new RequiredFieldValidator();
        validator.ControlToValidate = ((TextBox)item["CustomerID"].Controls[0]).ID;
        validator.ErrorMessage = "*";
        validator.ForeColor = Color.Red;
        item["CustomerID"].Controls.Add(validator);
 
        //RegularExpressionValidator to enter only numbers
        GridTextBoxColumnEditor editor = (GridTextBoxColumnEditor)item.EditManager.GetColumnEditor("OrderID");        
        TableCell cell = (TableCell)editor.TextBoxControl.Parent;
        RegularExpressionValidator validate = new RegularExpressionValidator();
        validate.ControlToValidate = editor.TextBoxControl.ID;          
        validate.ValidationExpression = @"^(\d{1,7})\b";
        validate.ErrorMessage = "Enter Number";
        validate.ForeColor = Color.Red;
        cell.Controls.Add(validate);
    }
}

Thanks,
Princy

Hi Princy,
              Thank you very much for giving me the code. But it is not working at my end. I am not sure if i am missing something or else i need to change something in my code.
Please find my code snapshot below for your reference and tell me what changes i have to made.

Senarios:  I am using RadGrid and i am doing CRUD operations from code behind though Item COmmand event. but before CRUD operations i need to validate my grid controls for input validations like email, numbers, pin code etc..... In my code behind I am calling WCF service to save,update and delete data to database.

Here is my code...

Hi Mayur,

The experienced problem could be caused from the fact that you are using a RadControls version older than Q1 2013 as described in detail in the help article below. If this is the case you could use the code provided below.
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)
    {
        GridEditableItem item = e.Item as GridEditableItem;
        GridTextBoxColumnEditor editor = (GridTextBoxColumnEditor)item.EditManager.GetColumnEditor("ContactName");
        TableCell cell = (TableCell)editor.TextBoxControl.Parent;
 
        RequiredFieldValidator validator = new RequiredFieldValidator();
        editor.TextBoxControl.ID = "ID_for_validation";
        validator.ControlToValidate = editor.TextBoxControl.ID;
        validator.ErrorMessage = "*";
        cell.Controls.Add(validator);
    }
}

<telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="State" DataField="StateName" UniqueName="StateName">
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "StateName")%>
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                </telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

Here is my aspx code

Hi Mayur,

You can add the validation at the aspx as follows:

ASPX:
<telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="StateName" DataField="StateName" UniqueName="StateName">
    <ItemTemplate>
        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "StateName")%>
    </ItemTemplate>
    <EditItemTemplate>
        <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
            DataTextField="StateName" DataValueField="StateName" >
        </asp:DropDownList>
        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator1" runat="server" ErrorMessage="*"
            ControlToValidate="DropDownList1"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
    </EditItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

Thanks,
Princy
