Hi,
i am experienced a strange problem with the Grid and Validation Summary
here the scenario:
1- i have a Grid to display the car details
2- user can edit the details in Popup mode
3- i want to display the validation errors in Validation Summary and not Validation Message
4- i am using IValidatableObject to validate the user inputs and CustomValidation
problem:
1- if i made the built in attribute validation, then the validation summary displays the errors correctly
2- if i made custom validation, validation summary fails to display  but surround the field by red ref: (ViewModels.CustomValidator for car type field)
3- if errors return by the Validate function, validation summary fails to display ref: (ViewModels.Car for country field)
problem facing:
1- try to set the country on edit to N/A and click update, nothing will be displayed however ModelState.IsValid is false
2- try to set the car type on edit to N/A and click update, the field will be red but no displayed message in the validation summary
3- try to clear the Name field and click update, the field will be red and validation summary will be displayed correctly

I am not able to figure out why validation summary not displaying in all cases, and how to fix this please?

thanks in advance

Hello Monah Abou Hattoum,

You need to return the member name of the field which validation fails. I.e:
public IEnumerable<ValidationResult> Validate(ValidationContext validationContext)
{
  // here i am trying to validate Country not using the custom validator
  if (Country == "N/A")               
    yield return new ValidationResult("Country filed is required!", new[] { "Country" });
}

Showing server validation errors in validation summary should be handled manually by handling OnError grid client event.

Hello Monah Abou Hattoum,

Client representation of the validation summary looks as follow:
<div data-valmsg-summary="true" class="validation-summary-valid">
 <ul>
  <li style="display:none"></li>
 </ul>
</div>


You will have to manually insert li elements for error handled on grid OnError.

Greetings,
if you want a fast solution, based on the attachement i added early in the question
please follow these steps
1- at the top of the car partial view add these

 

@Html.ValidationMessage("Country")

@Html.ValidationMessage("Name")

@Html.ValidationMessage("Model")

@Html.ValidationMessage("Weight")

@Html.ValidationMessage("Type")

and no need to use the validation summary

2- in the ViewModels->Car.cs
add the missing part in the return statement as "Nikolay Rusev" said in his reply

regards,
