    Consider the following code i want to set the grid datePicker column empty if date validation fails WorkOrderDate< task date , any help would be higly appreciable.


    columns.Bound(c => c.WorkOrderDetailsDate).Title("Estimated Start Date").EditorTemplateName("WorkOrderDetailsDate")


    @model DateTime?
    .Value(Model == null ? DateTime.Now.Date : ((DateTime)@Model).Date)

    function TaskDateValidate(e)

         if ($("#workOrder_EstStartDate").val() != null && $("#workOrder_EstStartDate").val() != "") {
        var workDate = kendo.parseDate($("#workOrder_EstStartDate").val());
        var taskDate = kendo.parseDate(kendo.toString(this.value(), 'd'));

           if (taskDate < workDate)

           showMessage("Task date should be after work order Date");
            this.value(""); <-----this is not working want to set to empty to force user to select date again
               this.value("28/02/2014");<---this is not working as well...

    please advise on this problem

    Hi Shaz,

    You can achieve that behavior by initializing a Kendo UI Validator and specifying the custom rules that should be applied. Then subscribe for the Grid's save event and once the event is triggered - call the Validator's validate method, as shown in this JavaScript example.
