@using System.ComponentModel

<TelerikForm Model="@Customer">
    <FormItems>
        <FormItem Field="CustomerName" Class="@GetClass("CustomerName")"></FormItem>
        <FormItem Field="PhoneNumber" Class="@GetClass("PhoneNumber")"></FormItem>
    </FormItems>
</TelerikForm>

<style>
    .dirty .telerik-blazor {
        border: 2px solid red;
    }
</style>

@code {
    public DemoCustomer Customer { get; set; }

    public List<string> DirtyFields { get; set; } = new List<string>();

    public string GetClass(string field)
    {
        return DirtyFields.Contains(field) ? "dirty" : null;
    }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        Customer = new DemoCustomer();

        Customer.PropertyChanged += (sender, e) =>
        {
            if (!DirtyFields.Contains(e.PropertyName))
            {
                DirtyFields.Add(e.PropertyName);
            }

            StateHasChanged();
        };

        base.OnInitialized();
    }
