ASP.Net MVC 4 C# -- custom error message fails ?

ASP.Net MVC 4 C# -- custom error message fails ?

I added StringLength(10, ErrorMessage="10 chars or less")] to the below two pages like
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14059455/adding-validation-attributes-with-an-entity-framework-data-model
talked about, REBUILD, ran the app, make a change, click SAVE, and get the attached error, not "10 chars or less"

How can I get "10 chars or less" to display ?
------------------------------------------
\Models\MD_Table1.cs

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations;

namespace MvcApplication18.Models
{
    internal sealed class MD_Table1
    {
        [Required(ErrorMessage = "Test1 is required.")]
        [StringLength(10, ErrorMessage = "10 chars or less")]
        public string Test1;
    }
}

    }
}

I don't have a fully solution but you can create  string from insetad console.writeline....and pass to client to display the details

string validationMsg;
foreach (var eve in e.EntityValidationErrors)
    {
       
           validationMsg = string.format("Entity of type \"{0}\" in state \"{1}\" has the following validation errors:",
            eve.Entry.Entity.GetType().Name, eve.Entry.State);
        foreach (var ve in eve.ValidationErrors)
        {
            validationMsg  += string.format("- Property: \"{0}\", Error: \"{1}\"",
                ve.PropertyName, ve.ErrorMessage);
        }
    }

apeterCommented:
You should have a separate catch block to catch validation errors. Modify accordingly as per  your need
try
{
...
...
db.SaveChanges();
}
catch (DbEntityValidationException e)
{
    foreach (var eve in e.EntityValidationErrors)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Entity of type \"{0}\" in state \"{1}\" has the following validation errors:",
            eve.Entry.Entity.GetType().Name, eve.Entry.State);
        foreach (var ve in eve.ValidationErrors)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("- Property: \"{0}\", Error: \"{1}\"",
                ve.PropertyName, ve.ErrorMessage);
        }
    }
    throw;
}

Steps
1.      Create \Models\MD_POheader.cs with below YELLOW

using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations;

namespace MvcApplication21.Models
{
    internal sealed class MD_POheader    {
        [Required(ErrorMessage = "Test1 is required.")]
        [StringLength(10, ErrorMessage = "10 chars or less")]
        public string LongName { get; set; }
    }
}

2.      Add below above generated \Models\Model1.tt\POHeader.cs public partial class POheader
•      [System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.MetadataType(typeof(MD_POheader))]
3.      WORKS
