Hello,

how can I prevent the user can exit the form?

private void AddressDetails_ValidatingItem(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e)
        {
            Address address = this.AddressDetails.CurrentItem as Address;
            try
            {
                if (address.LastName == null)
                {
                    throw new ValidationException("Das Feld Nachname darf nicht leer sein.");
                }
                //Save Changes
                SaveChanges();
            }
            catch (ValidationException ex)
            {
               RadWindow.Alert(ex.Message);
            }  
        }

Hi Harald,

Can you please share some details on what exactly do you mean by exiting the form?

Additionally, I suggest you taking a look at our documentation on Validation, as the supported by RadDataForm validation approaches are demonstrated in it. You may also find the DataForm Validation - ValidatingItem() useful on the matter.

If a required field is empty, the Click on Commit-Button show a Alert and the User canĀ“t leave the Editmode of the DataForm.

Hi Harald,

One way to achieve that is through the CancelEventArgs exposed by the ValidatingItem event. Just set the Cancel property to true:
if (address.LastName == null)
    {
        throw new ValidationException("Das Feld Nachname darf nicht leer sein.");
        e.Cancel = true;
    }

Hope this helps.
