Compare Validator

Hi Radzen Team,
Is there a way to force a compare validator to refresh?

I have a compare validator on a multiple step dialog (1) and need to ensure the user checks the agree terms checkbox.
If the next step button (2) is clicked without forcing a change of input focus first the error is detected within the step change event logic but the validator error message is not displayed.
If input focus is updated before clicking Next (2) the validator message displays correctly.

Got it to work much better by forcing an input focus change within the step component change event for that step.
