I want to develop a custom datasheet view to edit a list.

I add item through the javascript API. The problem is that the service doesn't control fields value. For example : - I add an item with a mandatory field - I don't fill the mandatory field - I save - The item is added to the list (no error from the webservice).

So, are there methods to control fields value ?

Can't you just make your validation on the field? It should be a simple if-statement in the javascript you use to add the item. – Daniel Ziga Jun 29 '12 at 15:46
