Hi Nurul, 
 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
We suggest you to use the “load” event of Grid to assign custom validation function for the particular column in Grid. In the below code, we have provided the custom validation in the “load” event handler function of Grid component. Please refer to the following code example, 
 
[Index.cshtml] 
 
    <ejs-grid id="Grid" toolbar="@(new List<string>() {"Delete" ,"Add", "Update", "Cancel" })" allowPaging="true" load="load"> 
        <e-data-manager url="/Home/UrlDatasource/" adaptor="UrlAdaptor"></e-data-manager> 
        <e-grid-editsettings allowDeleting="true" allowEditing="true" allowAdding="true"></e-grid-editsettings> 
        <e-grid-columns> 
            ... 
           <e-grid-column field="OrderDate" headerText="Effective Date" type="date" editType="datepickeredit" format="yMd"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="ShippedDate" headerText="Expired Date" validationRules="@(new { required = true})" editType="datepickeredit" format="yMd"></e-grid-column>  
        </e-grid-columns> 
    </ejs-grid> 
</div> 
 
<script> 
    function load() { 
        //Apply custom validation to the “OrderDate” column 
        this.columns[3].validationRules = { required: true, minDate: [customFn, 'Enter valid date'] }; 
    } 
    function customFn(args) { 
        //Provide your Custom validation function here 
       return args['value'].date >= ToEndDate.value; 
    }; 
 
</script> 
 
Please get back to us if you need further assistance.

Hi Nurul, 
 
From your given code example, we found that you have provided the string date values to comparison. So please change that string date value to date object before comparing it. Please refer the below code snippet, 
 
function customFn(args) { 
        //provide your custom validation 
        var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        return new Date(args['value']) <= new Date(document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[3].field).value); 
    }; 
    function customFn1(args) { 
        //provide your custom validation 
        var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        return new Date(args['value']) >= new Date(document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[2].field).value); 
    }; 
 
 
Please get back to us, If you need further assistance on this.

Hi Nurul, 
 
Query #1: how to custom validation date in grid if format: 'dd/MM/yyyy' and date can pick only current date and toward 
 
We have analyzed your query and we have prepared sample on custom validation for comparing current date with the entered date. Please refer to the below sample for your reference. 
 
Code Example: 
 
[.cshtml] 
... 
<ejs-grid id="Grid" dataSource="ViewBag.DataSource" load="load" allowFiltering="true" allowPaging="true" toolbar="@(new List<string>() {"Add", "Edit",  
... 
           <e-grid-column field="OrderID" headerText="Order ID" width="120"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="OrderDate" headerText="Order Date" editType="datepickeredit" width="120"></e-grid-column> 
            ... 
       </e-grid-columns> 
 
    </ejs-grid> 
</div> 
<script> 
    function load(args) { 
        this.columns[1].format = { type: 'date', format: 'dd/MM/yyyy' }; 
        this.columns[1].validationRules = {required: true, minDate: [myFun, 'Invalid']}; 
    } 
    function myFun(args) { 
        var entered = args.value.split("/");  //changing date format just to compare with current date 
        return new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= (new Date()).setHours(0,0,0,0); //comparing current date(excluding current time) with entered date 
    }  
</script> 
... 
 
 
Query #2: Other than that, my issue is the date appear minus 1 when adding new record. 
 
We are unable to reproduce the reported issue at our end. Please provide the below details, it will be helpful for us to provide better solution as soon as possible. 
 
  1. Is there any defaultValue property or field object set to that column?
  2. Please reproduce the reported issue in the given sample if possible.
 
 
Please get back to us for further assistance.

Hi Nurul, 
 
We have validated the reported issue and found that timezoneoffset is cause of this issue. TimezoneOffset will affect the converted string, when we stringify the date object. So we suggest you to use the following solution in actionBegin event of the Grid to resolve this issue. Please refer the following code snippet, 
 
<ejs-grid id="Grid" allowPaging="true" actionBegin="begin"> 
 
            ... 
 
</ejs-grid> 
 
<script>       
 function begin(args) { 
        if (args.requestType == "save") { 
            var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
            var cols = grid.columns; 
            for (var i = 0; i < cols.length; i++) { 
                if (cols[i].type == "date") { 
                    var date = args.data[cols[i].field];

MI Muhammad Idywin Zakaria January 29, 2019 02:27 AM

Hi Mohamed,

Thank you for helping me,

Here I found a new problem, the custom validation seems worked, but it comparing only the date and not a full date format dd/MM/yyyy.  

For example:

Start date :29/01/2019
End date :30/01/2019
-VALID

Start date :29/01/2019
End date :03/02/2019
-INVALID

Start date :   29/01/2019
End date :     30/03/2019
-VALID

Can you help me how to solve this problem.

My concern is start date and end date effect each other in the grid.

I have include .NET Core source code below.

Hi Muhammad, 

We have analyzed the reported problem with the sample from our previous update. We suggest you to add and replace the below highlighted lines in the sample from our previous update to overcome the reported problem. Previously the return from the custom validation function was with string values, which is the cause of the problem. So now we have compared date values which solves the problem. Please refer the code example below, 

 
    function myFun1(args) { 
       var entered = args.value.split("/"); 
        var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        var endDate1 = document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[3].field).value; 
        var enddatesplitted = endDate1.split("/"); 
        if (new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= (new Date()).setHours(0, 0, 0, 0)) { 
            //Here we have compared date values(previously the comparison was with string values which is the cause of problem) 
            return new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) <= new Date(enddatesplitted[1] + '/' + enddatesplitted[0] + '/' + enddatesplitted[2]); 
        } 
    } 
 
    function myFun2(args) { 
       var entered = args.value.split("/"); 
        var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        var startDate1 = document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[2].field).value; 
        var startDateplitted = startDate1.split("/"); 
        if (new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= (new Date()).setHours(0, 0, 0, 0)) { 
            //Here we have compared date values(previously the comparison was with string values which is the cause of problem) 
            return new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= new Date(startDateplitted[1] + '/' + startDateplitted[0] + '/' + startDateplitted[2]); 
        } 
    }

Hi Pavithra

I'm referring to the above solution that has been provided by syncfusion support previously.
Base on that, now we have the problem to send the blank value for the date.

e.g for the start date we have 20/12/2018 but for the end date we will let it blank, so the value will be infinity / null that refer no end date.

Can you advice; refer to the attachment on code that has been combine from above soution

Thanks

Hi Haryzad, 
 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
We have analyzed your requirement. We suspect that your requirement is that, you would like to save empty value for the “EndDate” column in Grid. We suggest you to replace the sample from our previous update with the below highlighted codes to achieve this requirement. 
 
 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    function load() { 
        this.columns[2].format = { type: 'date', format: 'dd/MM/yyyy' }; 
        this.columns[2].validationRules = { required: true, minLength: [myFun1, 'Effective Date must less than Expired Date'] }; 
        this.columns[3].format = { type: 'date', format: 'dd/MM/yyyy' }; 
        this.columns[3].validationRules = { required: [myFun2, 'Expired Date must greater than Effective Date'] };    //set “required” instead of “minDate” and remove “required: true”. 
    } 
 
    function myFun1(args) { 
        var entered = args.value.split("/"); 
        var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        var endDate1 = document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[3].field).value; 
        var enddatesplitted = endDate1.split("/");  
        if (new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= (new Date()).setHours(0, 0, 0, 0)) { 
           var returnfnval = endDate1 == "" ? true : new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) <= new Date(enddatesplitted[1] + '/' + enddatesplitted[0] + '/' + enddatesplitted[2]);              //Check for empty value of enddate and return true if enddate is “” . 
            return returnfnval;  
        } 
    } 
 
    function myFun2(args) { 
        var entered = args.value.split("/"); 
        var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
        var startDate1 = document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[2].field).value; 
        var endDate1 = document.getElementById(grid.element.id + grid.columns[3].field).value; 
        var startDateplitted = startDate1.split("/");  
        if (new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= (new Date()).setHours(0, 0, 0, 0)) { 
           var returnfnval = endDate1 == "" ? true : new Date(entered[1] + '/' + entered[0] + '/' + entered[2]) >= new Date(startDateplitted[1] + '/' + startDateplitted[0] + '/' + startDateplitted[2]);              //Check for empty value of enddate and return true if enddate is “” . 
            return returnfnval; 
        } 
 
    } 
 
    function begin(args) { 
        if (args.requestType == "save") { 
            var grid = document.getElementById("Grid").ej2_instances[0]; 
            var cols = grid.columns; 
            for (var i = 0; i < cols.length; i++) { 
                if (cols[i].type == "date") { 
                    var date = args.data[cols[i].field]; 
                    args.data[cols[i].field] = date == null ? date : new Date(Date.UTC(date.getFullYear(), date.getMonth(), date.getDate(), date.getHours(), date.getMilliseconds()));                   //Check for “date” value as null. If its null, don’t do date calculations. 
                } 
            } 
        } 
    } 
</script>     
 
 
In the above code, we have set the “required” property as “customfn” instead of “minDate” for the “EndDate” field, and also we have removed “required:true”. Then in the custom functions “myFun1”, “myFun2”  we will be return “true” if the end date value is “”. And finally in the “actionBegin” handler we have checked for the “date” is null, based on that we will be returning the value. 
 
If we have misunderstood your query, we need more details to further look into the problem, please get back to us with the following details for better assistance. 
  1. Share the detailed description of your complete requirement.
  2. Share the details of the problem or script error you are facing in achieving your requirement.
  3. Share the screenshot/video demo showing your complete requirement or the problem you are facing.
 
The provided information will help us analyze the problem, and provide you a solution as early as possible.

Pavithra S.
