I have the Required attribute on my model, but when I use DatePickerFor, Kendo Validator does not pick that up. If I use the F12 tools and manually add "required='required'" to the input that the DatePicker renders, then Validator picks it up and shows a message next to the picker. Besides that, it's also not picking up the ErrorMessage on my Required attribute. I'm assuming I could add another attribute to the <input> for it to pick that up as well, but not yet sure what the attribute name is. Can you please explain why I can't just get this behavior out of the box, and if this is a bug with the DatePickerFor? I'd rather not have to use .HtmlAttributes to manually stick these things onto every DatePicker. Maybe I'm just missing something, but for something like this, you expect it to just work. Thanks!
