where can Validation rule be given

Validation rule for a field in a standard object can be given through triggers/objects validation rule/ controllers.

is there any other way to do validation.


You can make the field required...that's a type of data validation in that the field must have a value before the record is saved.


Why do you need another validation method? I think the ones you mention pretty much cover everything.


Following means can be used to have a field level validation in SFDC:


1. Page layout (make a field required, however this will not be conditional)

2. Write a validation rule (this will fire based upon a condition i.e. will apply if the record meets a pre-defined criteria)

3. Use Apex logic to enforce validation on a field


Hope this helps!
