i'm fairly new to Kendo UI MVC and am trying to rebuild an old app with the kendo grid in .net.
What i am trying to do is: Use the Grid in batch editing mode and allow in line editing on the client side. I have some problems with the client side validation of the grid data. The grid is filled with data from the Viewmodel. If the user hit's the "kontigente speichern" button i want to validate the existing rows, because the HOTEL field is empty by default, but the $('#kontingenteHinzu').data().kendoGrid.editable.validatable.validate() method always comes back as "true" and try's to submit the grid data/ the page is reloaded. This happens although the HOTEL field is marked as required in the mvc view model. Additionally the KONTINGENT field ist only validated once it is clicked into, otherwise the validate() methoded just reloades the page. I do not use the build in "save changes" method because we use a seperate button in oure design/layout. If the user hit's the "+ Kontigent hinzufügen" button the existing rows should be validated bevor he can do that but i'm not sure how to accomplish this since the existing rows always return true with the validate() method, although they are not "valid".
Maybe someone has an idea how to get this working or even an easyer way with the build in grid methodes.
