C validating close form

This got me to thinking: What are some best practices for doing validation in mobile applications?

View Example Code Validation is a necessary evil, but it doesn’t have to be a black mark on the face of an otherwise gorgeous UI.

Kendo UI Mobile and the Validator (all of which are part of the free Kendo UI Core that you can download here) are flexible enough to allow you to implement whatever type of form validation UI that you like the best.

You must also include the Kendo UI Validator module at the very least.

By default, the validator will place a tooltip directly next to the input where validation fails.

What are some other mobile applications out there that you think are doing form validation right?

I’m sure I’ve missed several other options, so drop into the comments and let me know which ones are worth taking a look at.

Soliciting data from users is a common use for a Word User Form, but a typo, a correctly spelled but invalid value, or even a control left blank can render your document unusable.

Fortunately, you can include a bit of VBA code to check input values for specific attributes.

This (but not quite) works with Kendo UI Mobile forms.

Here is what you get when you validate a form in portrait using Kendo UI Mobile and the Kendo UI Validator.
