EDIFACTValidator is a lightweight EDI validation component designed for simple document validation.

Syntax

IPWorksEDIFACT.Edifactvalidator

Remarks

This component provides a simple way to validate an EDI document and obtain details about any validation errors.

EDI Validation

Before calling Validate set SchemaFormat and call LoadSchema to load the schema for the document to be validated. The schema defines many validation rules such as minimum and maximum lengths, minimum and maximum occurrences, and more. The validation performed by the component depends largely on the schema's definition.

When the Validate method is called the component will attempt to validate the document. If errors are found during validation the ValidationError event will fire with details about each error as it is encountered. After the document has been validated the ValidationErrors property will be populated with details of each error.

Inspect the ValidationErrors property for information on any errors that were encountered.

Validation Example

validator.InputFile = "files/EDIDocuments/MyEDIDoc.txt";
validator.LoadSchema("my_schemas/00501/RSSBus_005010X222A1_837.json");

validator.Validate();

foreach (ValidationErrorDetail error in validator.ValidationErrors) {
  Console.WriteLine(error.ErrorCode + ": " + error.Message);
}
