Hi Pradeep, 

Greetings from Syncfusion support. 

We can achieve your requirement “set max length for string type column in Grid for validation”. By using the maxLength property of validationRules in columns API. 

Refer the below code example. 


<ejs-grid id="Grid" dataSource="ViewBag.dataSource"  toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Update", "Cancel" })" allowPaging="true"> 
        <e-grid-editSettings allowAdding="true" allowDeleting="true" allowEditing="true" newRowPosition="Top"></e-grid-editSettings> 
            <e-grid-column field="OrderID" headerText="Order ID" isPrimaryKey="true" validationRules="@(new { required=true, number=true})" width="140"></e-grid-column> 
            <e-grid-column field="CustomerID" headerText="Customer Name" validationRules="@(new { required=true, maxLength=5})" width="150"></e-grid-column>

Hi Pradeep, 
We suggest you to use the below solution to resolve this problem. Here we have used the actionComplete event to restrict the characters to enter in the input box. Please refer the below code example for more information. 
<ejs-grid id="Grid" allowPaging="true" load="onLoad" actionComplete="ActionComplete" toolbar="@(new List<string>() {"Add", "Edit", "Update", "Delete" })">​ 
    function ActionComplete(args) { 
        if (args.requestType == "beginEdit") { 
            var inputElement = document.getElementById(this.element.id + "CustomerID"); 
            inputElement.setAttribute('maxlength', '5'); 
Refer the help documentation.
