When a particular row loses focus, the ColumnView.ValidateRow event fires, allowing you to validate the row. In the event handler, you can call the ColumnView.SetColumnError method to specify a validation error (icon and description) for the row being validated, or for a particular cell in the row. By default, these errors are displayed if the validation fails (the Valid event argument is set to false). Set the AllowValidationErrors property to false to suppress displaying validation errors. Note that the AllowValidationErrors property only affects the error display, but not the validation itself.
