Hello

I would like to add some validators to the edit form that is generated automatically by the rad grid when you go into edit mode.

I have seen this help topic on the subject.
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grdvalidation.html

I do not want to add the validators programmatically. I would prefer to add them manually. I believe i can add them manually to the edit item template of a grid template column. However all of the columns in my grid are simple bound columns. Does this mean i have to convert all of my bound columns into template columns in order to add the validators? This is quite a lot of work. I was hoping it would be easier than this

thanks

Hello Andrea,

A suggestion is to use a FormTemplate EditForm instead of the AutoGenerated EditForm with the column editors and then manually add validators for the required GridColumnEditors, rather than converting all your bound columns to templates columns.
Form Template Edit Form
