DataFormView.Validate() Method

Validates all data fields on the form according to the current validation logic.

Namespace: DevExpress.Maui.DataForm

Assembly: DevExpress.Maui.Editors.dll

Declaration

public bool Validate()

Returns

Type Description
Boolean

true if the data field value is valid; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The ValidationMode property specifies when the data form validates the user input. The following modes are supported:

  • LostFocus—the form validates a data field when an editor loses focus.
  • PropertyChanged—the form validates a data field when its value changes.
  • Manually—the form validates data fields when the Validate() method is called. You can also call the Validate(String) method to validate a specific data field.

Note

The form also validates data fields when the Commit() method is called. If values are not valid, they are not committed to the underlying data object.

See the following topic for more information: Validate User Input in Data Form View for Xamarin.Forms.
