Display Validation Error Message in the Upload File Template

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Upload

Description

How can I pass the message from a validation error to the custom file template of the Kendo UI Upload? How can I display that message?

Solution

  1. Use the select event handler of the Upload to retrieve the error validation message.
  2. Assign it to a field in the file object.
  3. Display the value for that field in the file template.

<script id="fileTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    #if (files[0].error) { # <div class="k-file-invalid"> # } #
      <span class="k-progress"></span>
      #if (!files[0].error) { # <span class="k-file-extension-wrapper"><span class="k-file-extension"> #= files[0].extension # # } #
      #if (files[0].error) { # <span class="k-file-invalid-extension-wrapper"> <span class="k-file-invalid-icon">! # } #
        </span>
        <span class="k-file-state"></span>

            #if (files[0].error) { # <span class="k-file-validation-message"> #= files[0].error # </span> # } #
            #if (!files[0].error) { var kbSize = kendo.toString(size/1024, "n0"); # <span class="k-file-size">#= kbSize # KB</span> # } #
        </span>
      <strong class="k-upload-status">
        <button type="button" class="k-button k-upload-action" aria-label="Remove">
          <span class="k-icon k-i-close k-i-x" title="Remove"></span>
        </button>
      </strong>
    #if (files[0].error) { # </div> # } #

      select: function(e) {

        for (var i = 0; i < files.length; i+= 1) {
          var file = files[i];
          if (file.validationErrors && file.validationErrors.length > 0) {
            file.error = file.validationErrors[0];
          }
        }
      },
      template: kendo.template($('#fileTemplate').html())
