Data Validation

The DataGrid allows you to validate user input. You can apply pre-defined validation rules or custom rules to individual columns.

Backend API
$(() => { const url = ''; $('#gridContainer').dxDataGrid({ dataSource:{ key: 'ID', loadUrl: url, insertUrl: url, updateUrl: url, deleteUrl: url, onBeforeSend(method, ajaxOptions) { ajaxOptions.xhrFields = { withCredentials: true }; }, }), repaintChangesOnly: true, columnAutoWidth: true, showBorders: true, paging: { enabled: false, }, editing: { mode: 'batch', allowUpdating: true, allowAdding: true, }, columns: [{ dataField: 'FirstName', validationRules: [{ type: 'required' }], }, { dataField: 'LastName', validationRules: [{ type: 'required' }], }, { dataField: 'Position', validationRules: [{ type: 'required' }], }, { dataField: 'Phone', validationRules: [{ type: 'required' }, { type: 'pattern', message: 'Your phone must have "(555) 555-5555" format!', pattern: /^\(\d{3}\) \d{3}-\d{4}$/i, }], }, { dataField: 'Email', validationRules: [{ type: 'required', }, { type: 'email', }, { type: 'async', message: 'Email address is not unique', validationCallback(params) { return $.ajax({ url: '', type: 'POST', dataType: 'json', contentType: 'application/json', data: JSON.stringify({ id:, email: params.value, }), }); }, }], }, ], }); });

In this demo, the following rules are used:

  • required
    Specifies that cells should not be empty.
  • pattern
    Specifies a pattern that cell values should match.
  • email
    Specifies that cell values match the Email pattern.
  • async
    Specifies custom validation parameters that are used to validate a value on the server.

For more information on these and other validation rules, refer to the following documentation section: Validation Rules.
