Web Forms :: To Add A Required Field Validator To A Text Box On Page?
Jan 11, 2010
I need to add a Required Field Validator to a text box on my page. When I add the validator the following happens when I run the page:
When I click the submit button the page doesn't submit because the page is invalid. No error message displays despite my having set the ErronMessage. When I click inside the text box that has the Validation, then the Required error message shows. When that textbox loses focus the error message goes away. The only way I can get the page to function correctly is if I create 2 Validators for the same text box. The first validator is set to have an ErrorMessage of "" and the second one is a regular error message.
I have used these before many upon many times and never experienced this. Below you will find the Source code.
This code is the only way I am able to get the validation to function correctly where the ErrorMessage displays when I leave the field blank. I appreciate any help on resolving this issue. I have deleted/re-added the validation control many times. This is the only page this type of error happens on.
Can a required field validator be called from the code behind page?We have several check boxes and some of them require the user to enter a date, but not all of them.(This is not a checkbox list, but individual checkboxes).Any 1 of 6 different checkboxes selected makes a txtBox visible for users to enter a date.If they don't select one of these checkBoxes which require a date - it doesn't matter, the form will still be valid.I don't think validation groups can work here so looking towards doing through .vbHere's the existing code:
When it comes to field validation, when I use a Compare Validator to make sure a date is a date or a numeric field has a number, I must also use a Required Field Validator to make sure there is something actually enetered. In other words, the Compare Validator allows a blank value even though a blank is not a date or number or whatever.
Is using both a Required Field Validator and a Compare Validator the way to do this or is there some way to make the Compare Validator also require input of some kind?
I have a form that contains times and dates. Each of these controls has a required field validator so that the user must put in the date and time. This apprears to work fine in testing. The data is stored in sql tables which are then worked with in the office using an Access Database. The webforms are simply used for gathering the data. In analyzing the data, they are finding that there are instances when no time has been stored. I don't know how the insert information could be saved if the control was blank. To make matters worse, the staff swear that they are entering the times.
Sometimes while registering on the website people don't provide correct details like name and e-mailIn order to check correct e-mail it is better to use e-mail activation link send to their e-mail.But how to make sure the user is providing correct name ?I am really impressed by the Facebook name recognition system, it we try to use any word which is not a name, it asks you to enter a valid name.Is there any way we can make use of asp.net requiredfieldvalidator to check if user is providing a correct name or not ?I know we can make use of requiredfieldvalidator to see how many alphabets / special symbols etc butIf we put minimum alphabet requirement - in that case user can enter "....." and can easily bypass the requiredfieldvalidator or a user can easily write "iamfakeuser" instead of name and bypass the requiredfieldvalidator. question is how to check if name is correct or not just like facebook registration form ?
I'm trying to use a field validator to make sure one of my list boxes has a selection before the user is able to proceed to the next page. i'm having is that if the validation message is triggered, all of the buttons on my page loose functionality.Meaning, if I purposely trigger the validation control, I can't get rid of the error message and none of my buttons do anything when clicke after this.
The majority of the HTML:
Is there something that I need to add to the code behind of the page or the Java Script that I'm using?
Interested in a way to call an event when the Required Field Validator component determines the assigned text field is not valid/empty. Is this possible? Somewhat surprised it doesn't have an event for this. Am I missing something?
I have a web forms where i have 10 required field validators for 10 textboxes. Validation group for these required field validator needs to be determined when the page loads. I tried to change the validator in the .cs file but failed.
i am working on web-form for which I have set the validation summary showmessagebox = "true".
I have two required field validators, which trigger on a checkbox's OnCheckedChanged event....now my problem is, when I hit submit, the page does not submit if I do not enter any values in the text boxes..which is correct behavior but it does not point out to the error or does not display the message box.
i have to scroll up to see what is wrong with he page and then try to enter the values...I do not understand why my message box does not show up or at least why my setfocusonerror which is set to true does
I have a gridview that contains a textbox, a drop down, and a checkbox. The commandfield of the gridview has ShowEditButton="true". All of the gridview updating takes place in the "_OnRowUpdating" event. I have a Panel above the gridview with a table and some fields. Everything in the gridview works perfectly, the edit, the update etc., however, when I add a requiredfieldvalidator to the panel above the gridview, the gridview update functionality no longer works. e.g., clicking the update button does not appear to fire. If I comment out the requiredfieldvalidator, everything works fine.

How Can it be achieved?

I populate two dropdownlist in asp.net. Both are assigned to a required field validator.
The codebehind is as below
the designer code is as below
Now what happens is, when i choose a field from the dropdown and once again when i choose the "-- Select--", the validator appears and then disappears.Where am I going wrong?Why doesnt the validator stay?RegardsHema
I have the following code, i add code for required validator, but when you make selection from dropdown to create the table, the page generates an error. Should the logic be somewhere else to add it to the table? i mean, dont they have to be there so when you submit the form, it fires the validation?
Here is the error that comes up, when i make a selection from my dropdown that creates the table.
Error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: Control 'rfvtxtCam1' referenced by the ControlToValidate property of 'rfvtxtCam1' cannot be validated.
