Is there a way to alter the text that is displayed in validation messages, rather than using the field names from the model?

For example, I have a datasource hooked up to a Grid and certain fields are required, but the internal field names are not exactly fit for display. So, if I have a field named 'user_first_name': rather than a message like: 'user_first_name is required' I'd like an easy way to specify an alias for the field name to produce 'First name is required'

I know it's possible to define custom validation messages, but the standard messages are generally fine, except for the field names. It seems like a lot of work to define loads of custom messages, when all I need is to replace the field name.

Any suggestions?

Hi Mat,

In order to achieve this you can specify the required validation message in the schema. For example:
dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
  //....
  schema: {
      model: {
         id: "ProductID",
         fields: {
              ProductID: { editable: false, nullable: true },
              FirstName: { validation: { required: {message: "First name is required"} } },
         }
       }
    }
});
Let me know if this fits your requirements.

Not sure how I missed that in the documentation... that's simple enough.

Thanks.

I found out, wrote it as:

$descriptionField->type('string')
                 ->validation(
array
                     (
'required' => array
                            (true,

                            'message'
=>'Description is required'
                            )
                     )
                 );

Hi!

I just want to ask: Is this still the current state of developement? Or is it now possible to use the standard-messages in combination with the labels of the grid-columns...? Defining custom-messages for all columns is time-consuming.

Best Regards!

Hello Elko,

There are no changes in that regard, as the Validator is not tightly coupled with the Grid and there is no built-in mechanism of using the column's title instead of the field's name.
