Hi

I have a grid that contains a field for an email address.  I need to validate that the email address at least conforms to the basic "<name>@<domain>.<tld>" format when the user enters a record.

I tried setting the type to "email" in the dataSource model, as below:

$("#usersGrid").kendoGrid({
     dataSource: {
         schema: {
             model: {
                 id: "Id",
                 fields: {
                     Id: { editable: false },
                     Email: { type: "email", validation: { required: true} },
                     Username: { validation: { required: true} }
                 }
             }
         }
     },
...

Interestingly,  it worked for updates.  However, when I try to create a new record, it gives the error: "Uncaught ReferenceError: Email is not defined".

My questions are:

1. Is there a way to validate a field that contains an email address in the grid? 

2. Additionally, is there a way to detect a validation failure from outside the grid?  I'm implementing a wizard and want to prevent the user from proceeding if they press the 'Next' button when the grid has an outstanding validation failure.

Hi Clinton,


Basically the KendoUI Model does not support such data type "email", however if you need to validate column of the Grid as an e-mail you should enable it in the column validation options:

$("#usersGrid").kendoGrid({
           dataSource: {
               schema: {
                   model: {
                       id: "Id",
                       fields: {
                           Id: { editable: false },
                           Email: { validation: { email: true, required: true} },
                           Username: { validation: { required: true} }
                       }
                   }
               }
           },
