    I have added a RadColorPicker control on xaml and binded (two way) its selected color property with a string. I am raising an error in cs file for it if some color is not matching with the predefined string. But it does not show any validation error (Red color box).
    Please suggest any solution.

    Hi Naveen,

    Unfortunately, the RadColorPicker has no built-in support for validation scenarios like yours. I logged your suggestion as a feature request in our PITS where you can vote for it thus increasing its priority. I also updated your Telerik account accordingly.

    In the meantime you'll have to create your own logic to display a validation tooltip. The RadColorPicker ControlTemplate has no validation elements and you'll have to add such and control their behavior based on your validation logic.

    Best wishes,

    Has there been any update to this?  Nearly 5 years later and this control still does not have built-in support for showing validation errors.  Also, it seems the PITS system has been retired so I have no other avenue to track the progress of this.

    Hi Naveen,

    Currently, we do not have plans to introduce a visual validation for the selected color property of RadColorPicker. In order to achieve such effect you can use the Tina's approach that includes modifying the ControlTemplate of the control and writing additional validation behavior.
