    How to set a max length validation to a DataBound column in the batch edit mode?

    E.g. in your demo http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/data-editing/batch-editing/defaultcs.aspx if you enter a long product name it will fail with "Product with ID 76 cannot be updated. Reason: String or binary data would be truncated. The statement has been terminated."

    I tied to set MaxLength but it doesn't work

    <telerik:GridBoundColumn UniqueName="ProductName"
       DataField="ProductName" MaxLength="40"
       HeaderText="Product Name">
    </telerik:GridBoundColumn>

    I assume by the lack of replies that there is no built-in solution for this using the MaxLength attribute with Batch editing?

    I can achieve the client-side functionality by setting a ColumnEditorID for the column and setting the TextBoxMaxLength attribute on the editor, but that obviously isn't an ideal solution for multiple columns with different text lengths.
