Hi! We are using in project Jquery Unobtrusive validation, but with kendo Dropdownlist validation doesn't work on client.

@(Html.Kendo().ComboBoxFor(model => model.CountryId)
      .Filter(FilterType.Contains)
      .BindTo(ViewBag.Countries)
      .HtmlAttributes(CommonHelpers.MergeHtmlAttributes(Html.GetUnobtrusiveValidationAttributes(
          CommonHelpers.GetPropertyName(() => Model.CountryId)),
          new Dictionary<string, object>(){
                          { "class", "combobox-country" }})))


How to fix this issue? Is it possible to combine Kendo Combobox and client-side mvc unobtrusive jquery validation?
Thanks!

Hello,

A problem with the jQuery validation and the dropdownlist could occur if you are using jquery.validate 1.9+. By default it ignores hidden inputs and the dropdownlist uses one to hold the value. In order to enable the validation in this case you should override the validator default settings e.g.

$.validator.setDefaults({ ignore: '' });

Hello Andrii,

Disabled inputs should not be validated and there is no option that could be used to enable the validation.
