Hi

How do I modify/customise the validation messages in  MVC4?

At the moment if I don't enter a field, I get "The value '' is invalid."

I would like that to say "This is an invalid email address"

I am using Entity Framework for my data if that makes a difference

Thanks

I'm assuming you have a [Required] attribute on the property in your model. If you'd looked up the Required attribute on MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.componentmodel.dataannotations.requiredattribute(v=vs.110).aspx) you would have seen it has an ErrorMessage property (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.componentmodel.dataannotations.validationattribute.errormessage(v=vs.110).aspx) that allows you to specify the message that should be shown.
