    I have a datapicker:


    <label class="required label-date" for="a-c">StartDate</label>
            <input id="a-c" class="k-datepicker" name="Date" required validationMessage="Write {0}" data-role="datepicker" data-bind="value: start, events: {change: OnChangeStart}" />


    and a kendo validator with datapicker rules:


    var validator = $("#form").kendoValidator({
             rules: {
               datepicker: function(input) {
                 if (input.is("[data-role=datetimepicker]")) {
                   return input.data("kendoDateTimePicker").value();
                 } else {
                   return true;
             messages: {
               datepicker: "Please enter valid date!",
               required: " Required input"


    validationMessage override the datapicker message.

    I would not like to delete the Validation Message.

    Hi Federico,

    The described behavior is expected since the input element has required attribute. This triggers the required validation first and as it fails no other validation is triggered. 

    Remove the required attribute and validation should display the correct message:
