Implement Server Validation for Wizard

Environment

Product Wizard for Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET MVC

Description

I want to implement server-side Validation with the Wizard component.

Solution

You can achieve this requirement using the following approach:

<style>
    .k-form-buttons {
        display: none;
    }
</style>

@(Html.Kendo().Wizard()
        .Name("wizard")
        .Events(e=>e.Select("wizardSelect"))
        .Steps(s =>
        {
            s.Add()
            .Title("Step 1")
            .ContentId("stepOne")
            .Buttons(b =>
            {
                b.Next();
            });
            s.Add()
            .Title("Step 2")
            .Content("<h4>You can now complete the wizard.</h4>")
            .Buttons(b =>
            {
                b.Previous();
                b.Done();
            });
        })
    )
<script id="stepOne" type="text/kendo-template">
    @(Html.Kendo().Form<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.Form.UserViewModel>()
        .Name("formExample")
        .HtmlAttributes(new { action = @Url.Action("Validation", "Form"), method = "POST" })
        .Orientation("vertical")
        .Validatable(v =>
        {
            v.ValidateOnBlur(true);
            v.ValidationSummary(vs => vs.Enable(true));
            v.ErrorTemplate("<span class='k-form-error'>#:message#</span>");
        })
        .Items(items =>
        {
            items.AddGroup()
                .Label("Registration Form")
                .Items(i =>
                {
                   i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.FirstName)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("First Name:"));
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.LastName)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Last Name:"));
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.UserName)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Username:"));
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.Password)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Password:"))
                        .Hint("Hint: enter alphanumeric characters only.")
                        .EditorTemplateHandler("setPasswordEditor");
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.Email)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Email:"));
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.DateOfBirth)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Date of Birth:").Optional(true));
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.HireDate)
                        .Editor(e => e.DatePicker())
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Hire Date:"));

                        .Label(l => l.Text("Retire Date:"));
                    i.Add()
                        .Field(f => f.Agree)
                        .Label(l => l.Text("Agree to Terms:"));
                });
        })
