how can I define a custom text for a required field in a grid column edited inline.
I use validationRules but I do not know which property to use for the text.

Hi Adriano, 

Greetings from Syncfusion support. 

We can achieve your requirement using the below code example. 


<ejs-grid #normalgrid id='Normalgrid' [dataSource]='data' allowPaging='true' [pageSettings]='pageSettings' [editSettings]='editSettings' [toolbar]='toolbar' (actionBegin)='actionBegin($event)'> 
                <e-column field='OrderID' headerText='Order ID' width='140' textAlign='Right' isPrimaryKey='true' [validationRules]='orderidrules'></e-column> 



export class AppComponent { 
    public dropDown: DropDownListComponent; 
    public data: Object[]; 
    public editSettings: Object; 
    public toolbar: string[]; 
    public orderidrules: Object; 


    public ngOnInit(): void { 
        this.data = orderDataSource; 
        this.editSettings = { allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true , newRowPosition: 'Top' }; 
        this.toolbar = ['Add', 'Edit', 'Delete', 'Update', 'Cancel']; 
        this.orderidrules = { required: [true,'OrderID is required'], number: true }; 


We have prepared a simple sample in the following link.
