Questions on Validation rules with Modal and popups RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on my first ever application within Lightswitch.

    I am working on creating an Inventory system that is coded in VB.net

    currently I can add/edit and delete records. I have moved on to working on the validation for the  modal windows, which are all custom modal windows. I am using comboboxes and textboxes on the modal window. The comboboxes are populated through the property entity relationships that was created.  I am currently having some issues working out the validation rules for my modal window controls.

    Any insights and information would be helpful as I  have not been able to find many references to creating these validation rules.

  • Validation is usually done by the Business Logic layer, the Server project.

    Open an entity in the Server project. Select a property on that entity, click the down arrow on the Write Code button and select the PropertyName_Validate event.
