Need functions that extend the default validation checking for jqGrid

I have a jqGrid which is returning the same message twice, since I am using the built in validation to validate two related fields. They need to have the same message, so I need a way to only display the message once.

The error message box is created by Ajax/jqGrid and I do not know how to drill down and find that message.

Can someone please tell me how to define a custom validation function that extend the default validation checking?  The line where the error message is defined here:

+ "data-val-remote-url='/Ajax/IsConcEnough' data-val-remote-additionalfields='SubmissionID,samples[{0}].Vol' data-val-remote='Provided Volume and Concentration are not enough' data-val-remote-type='POST' "

I would like to call a function instead os using a string to set the data-val-remote parameter. And I would like to return a null string in the event the other control also has a value set for the  data-val-remote parameter.

My site is internal use, and this change is not yet deployed. Funny, that was my question in an earlier day of me working with jqGrid validation.

Today I tested using C# code in the creationof the Ajax return error string values at page load. And that works!

BUT, seems rather like an oversight, but while I am able to set a max and a min value of the field, I seem only allowed one range message. First one defined, rules.


data-val-range seems to hold the message. Any idea how to get BOTH a min and a max message?
