Hi Telerik Team,

I've a time picker and when I put lower case characters in, validation is false, like instead of PM if I put pM, I get the following message as in the picture.

Also the validation message is not coming from Data Annotation.

Please let me know.

Thank you

Hi Niroj,

I posted an answer to the support thread opened on the same subject. Here is a quote of the answer:

Straight up to your questions:

#1:
Kendo Validator uses a special mvcdate rule, which internally calls kendo.parseDate to determine whether the input is a valid date. As you can see when no formats are passed, the method will uses a list of formats defined in the current Kendo culture to validate the input. In this case, it successfully parse 10:00 pM as a 10:00 and does not show error message. You can overcome this overriding the mvcdate rule (do this after the grid declaration):
<script>
    var originMvcDate = kendo.ui.validator.rules.mvcdate;
 
    kendo.ui.validator.rules.mvcdate = function (input) {
        var format = input.attr("data-format");
        if (format) {
            return kendo.parseDate(input.val(), format);
        }
        return originMvcDate(input);
    }
</script>

The next step is to add a specific format, that the validator will use:
//TimePicker editor cshtml page
 
...
.HtmlAttributes(new { data_format="hh:mm tt" })
...

#2:
The error message defined in DateTypeAttribute is ignored when a unobtrusive attributes are rendered by the ASP.NET MVC framework. The first option to overcome this is to set the error message manually:
.HtmlAttributes(new { data_format="hh:mm tt", data_val_date="Your error" })
The other option is to use the approach discussed here.

I will ask you to continue our conversation in only one thread to avoid any duplication.
