    I'm trying to add some client side validation to the WYSIWIG Editor in MVC, however I cannot find any forum posts or docs with instructions on how to do this. I've tried basic unobtrusive validation but that obviously doesn't work because the textarea generated by KendoUI is set to hidden.

    Can you please point me in the right direction on how to do this? I'd only like to do simple client side validation such as "Not Empty" etc.

    Hello Alex,

    If you wish to use the jQuery validation then you should use the approach demonstrated in this documentation topic to override the default ignore settings in order for the editor to be validated. If you wish to use the Kendo Validator then the only requirement is to include the kendo.aspnetmvc JavaScript file.
