DataAnnotations On A DateTime Property?

Jul 15, 2010

I have a DateTime property in my model and I would like to validate it using DataAnnotations.In my view I want to get that DateTime as a number of days (e.g. "3"), instead of a DateTime (e.g. "7/14/2010"). If user enters "3" in the view, then DataAnnotation finds it invalid -and that is the issue.What are my options in this scenario?

MVC :: Unable To Get DataAnnotations Client Validation And Nullable DateTime Property

May 12, 2010

I am having a problem with the Client Validation not firing when I have marked a nullable DateTime field as [Required] and the value of the field is null. (It is actually stopping ALL client validation on the page working - not just the DateTime field).

Interestingly enough, once a post back has been done and the error picked up on the server, the client validation starts working.

Also if you set the date to a none null value (see commented out line in the controller) it will also work

I have replicated this behaviour in a small test project (this is deliberately very Noddy - just enough to replicate the problem)

Am I doing something fundamentally wrong or am I looking at coding some sort of work around here? (I realise that a Required nullable field sounds like a bit of a oxymoron, but I wanted to present the user with a blank field which they must then fill, not one pre-populated with an arbitrary date value)

Web Forms :: UserControl With DateTime Property - Set Markup In Local Datetime Format

Jan 21, 2010

I created a UserControl and added a public DateTime property. I want to set this property in Markup (ie. <cc1:MyControl runat="server" id="MyControl1" DateTimeProp="1/1/2010" /> ) however I live in a place with a dd/mm/yyyy date format so it complains if I set something like "20/1/2010". Is there a way to set markup in my local datetime format or do I have to conform to "mm/dd/yyyy"?

MVC :: Nullable DateTime And DatePicker - Dictionary Requires A Non-null Model Item Of Type 'System.DateTime

Apr 1, 2011

I have a problem:

I've created usual Controller and View(Edit view) for editing my Entity (EntityFramework)

Here is view example:

<div class="editor-field">

@Html.EditorFor(model => model.BirthDate)

@Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.BirthDate)


BirthDate is Nullable<DateTime>

but during loading my View I get this exception

The model item passed into the dictionary is null, but this dictionary requires a non-null model item of type 'System.DateTime'.

That's because of BirthDate is null in database but it is nullable and I expect that it just leaves the filed empty.

And I have Shared EditorTemplate:

@model System.Nullable<System.DateTime>

@if (Model.HasValue)

MVC :: Can DataAnnotations Persist Through Serialization

May 24, 2010

I am using business objects that are accessed via webservices. These objects can be loaded via the webservice and serialized to my mvc app. The mvc app can get a web reference to the objects and they can be utilized in the mvc app. However, the business objects are where the classes are defined, and where the annotations are applied.

The mvc validation seems to have no idea that there are System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations attributes applied to this business object class.

1) Are DataAnnotations lost when objects are serialized / deserialized?

2) If in mvc I use a view model approach, and have nested objects (which themselves have public properties - decorated with DataAnnotations) can/will the mvc validation system traverse the entire object model, the model being used for my view? (so it can see DataAnnotations attributes of the nested object)?

MVC :: Using DataAnnotations To Verify Integer?

Sep 30, 2010

I am using Entity Framework with partial classes added on so I can use DataAnnotation attributes. Does anyone know how to add a data annotatin which will verify that a field is a whole number (or a DataType of int or long)? I'm surprised there is no [DataType(DataType.Integer)] attribute. I tried to create a custom attribute, but it doesn't work because the value it receives is always null:


Obviously I'm missing the point, but I don't know enough to know what I'm missing.

Disable DataAnnotations Validation On DefaultModelBinder?

Mar 16, 2010

I want DefaultModelBinder not to perform any validation based on DataAnnotations metadata. I'm already using DataAnnotations with DynamicData for the admin area of my site, and I need a different set of validation rules for the MVC based front-end. I'm decorating my classes with the MetadataType attribute. If I could have different MetadataType classes for the same model but used on different scenarios that would be great.If not I'm fine with just disabling the validation on the DefaultModelBinder, either by setting some property or by creating a specialized version of it.

MVC :: DataAnnotations Error Message Localization?

Feb 17, 2010

I have a problem with server-side validation in xVal. I'm using the RequiredAttribute from DataAnnotations.

I would like to change error message from:

The field is required.


Polje je obvezno.

My current solution is this: [Required(ErrorMessage = "Polje je obvezno.")]

But I was wondering if it's possible just to write [Required] and to override error message in one place? (like there is a localization file for client-side validation in xVal)

Something like this [DataType(CssClass = "DateTime")]

public string Name { get; set; }
[Required, StringLength(500)]
public string Description { get; set; }
[DataType(CssClass = "DateTime")]

MVC :: 2 RC On 3.5 SP1 - Client Side Validation From DataAnnotations?

Jan 19, 2010

I have tried everything to get client-side validation to work in MVC2 RC, but have been completely unsuccessful. Server-side validation works just fine, but client-side never fires. I have grabbed


from the futures source, since it wasn't included in RC. Unfortunately, that's the only script that people agree is necessary for everything to work. Besides that, nobody seems to know which other specific js scripts are needed. The candidates are (jquery-1.3.2.js, jquery.validate.js, MicrosoftMvcAjax.js, MicrosoftMvcJQueryValidation.js). I've tried every permutation of these and other scripts to no avail.

Html.EnableClientValidation() has been included before BeginForm, and the JSON validation data appears to be correctly written into the source of the page. But, again, client-side validation never fires.
