I want to validate empty input and show an error message when input is equals to "".
So, I use the CurrentCellValidating event and cancel the event if necessary. This works only
when the cell was initially set to something other than an empty string("").
But in my case: the CurrentCellValidating event isn''t triggered and even if sometimes, the RejectChanges
prevents the event from being triggered the next times.
I do the following:
Add a row with 3 cells, and set the input into the first cell:
gridTemplates.CurrentCell.Activate(row, 1, GridSetCurrentCellOptions.ScrollInView);
When the edited cell wasn''t edited and the user intended to go to the next cell, the CurrentCellValidating
event isn''t triggered. This only happens if I initially set the cells''s value (CurrentCellRenderer.ControlValue)
to something. Next, when I press the escape key, this doesn''t work either.
Any hints how I can get to this?
Thanks in advance

Here is a general idea. It may need a little tweaking as you try to implement it.
Try handling grid.CurrentCellMoving. In your handler, check if grid.CurrentCell.IsModified is false (which means your user did not change anything, and may be trying the leave an empty cell). In this case, if grid[grid.CurrentCell.RowIndex, grid.CurrentCell.ColIndex].Text is empty, the set grid.CurrentCell.ErrorMessage and set e.Cancel = true.
