Hi, 

You should implement the INotifyDataErrorInfo interface in your view model class. Please refer to

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/19490.wpf-4-5-validating-data-in-using-t... for more information and examples.

For red star (*) you should make 2 texbox'es inside grid or stackpanel. One of them preset text "*" and make Foreground = "red". Second textbox will show field label with esri style. 

If you want to make universal dialog for different database table records you should bind "*" textbox visibility to database field property.
