Validation provider

The WinForms Validation provider by Telerik is a validation management tool designed to enable users to easily define multiple validation rules and associate them with editors without having to write a single line of code.

  • Validation with multiple rules: ability to add complex validation logic.
  • Validate against another control: easily perform data validation against the value of another control, e.g. ensure that the start date is less than the end date in the DateTimePicker control.
  • Validation modes: ability to control when the validation will be triggered, e.g. when the text is changed, etc.
  • Design time experience: the FilterDescriptor Collection Editor provides rich design time experience for adding different types of validation rules.
  • Error indication: an error icon with a tooltip can be displayed in case of a validation failure.
