messages Object

Set of messages (either strings or functions) which will be shown when given validation rule fails. By setting already existing key the appropriate built-in message will be overridden.

Defining custom messages

<form id="myform">
    <input name="username" required /> <br />
    <input type="email" name="userEmail" required data-message="My custom email message" /> <br />
    <button>Validate</button>
</form>

<script>
    $("#myform").kendoValidator({
         messages: {
             // defines a message for the 'custom' validation rule
             custom: "Please enter valid value for my custom rule",

             // overrides the built-in message for the required rule
             required: "My custom required message",

             // overrides the built-in message for the email rule
             // with a custom function that returns the actual message
             email: function(input) {
                 return getMessage(input);
             }
         },
         rules: {
           custom: function(input) {
             if (input.is("[name=username]")) {
                 return input.val() === "Tom";
             }
             return true;
           }
         }
    });

    function getMessage(input) {
      return input.data("message");
    }
</script>
