Access Textbox Properties In A Custom Validator?

Feb 10, 2010

I want to build a custom validator control that inherits from BaseValidator. It will only be used on textboxes in my application. How can I get access to the textbox itself (read properties of the textbox) within the custom validator?

Here is what I have in my EvaluateIsValid function:

Dim t As TextBox = CType(Page.FindControl(Me.ControlToValidate), TextBox)
Return t.Text.Length <= t.MaxLength

It can't seem to find the control, so it breaks with a null reference exception. Can I do this another way?

C# - How To Access Attributes Of Properties In The Model From Strongly Typed Custom HtmlHelper

Mar 18, 2011

I have a view that is strongly typed and its model is of type LogOnModel. That LogOnModel has anotated properties like this one:

[Required(ErrorMessage = "Please enter your password")]
[Display(Name = "Password", Description = "Your secreet password")]
public string Password { get; set; }

All of them has Display anotation with Display.Descripion property set. I want to create HtmlHelper extension method that will output <span> containg the value of Display.Description property. So for example if I called my extension method DescriptionFor than this code:

<%: Html.DescriptionFor(m => m.Password) %>

should produce following html: <span>Your secreet password</span>

C# - Load A User Control In An Ajax WCF Service And Access Custom Properties?

Apr 4, 2011

I can load a generic user control just fine in my WCF service doing the following:

UserControl userControl= (UserControl) new Page().LoadControl("~/UserControls/MyControl.ascx");

However i can't seem to find any way to do this

MyControl myControl=(MyControl)userControl;

The reason i need to do this is because my user control has a custom property, person, I need to do the following:

myControl.Person=new Person();

essentially i need to simulate:

<%@ Reference Control="~/UserControls/MyControl.ascx" %>

which normally goes inside page or master-pages.any way of doing this in an Ajax Enabled WCF Service?

Web Forms :: Client Side Custom Validator Changing Textbox Values?

Mar 19, 2010

I've been working on a task to add a validator to compare the values of two text fields in a ASP.NET 1.1 application.

It uses validators already, so the best approached seemed to involve a CustomValidator. I was inspired by the following example:


I got the server side validation working - now I'm trying to add some client-side validation but I'm having a strange issue.

When I click in either of the two text fields, the value of the txtFinalGrade field is overridden to either "true" or "false". I've been having a tough time tracking down the code that's causing this. I tried using the IE Developer Toolbar to trace the script - as well as FireBug in Firefox (though this is an IE-only app) and I'm still trying to figure out what's causing this to happen.

Since I think this is a JavaScript issue, I'm posting that part of my code:


Anyone have ideas of things to try? Anyone have similar issues with textboxes being set to true/false when working with custom validators?

Does A Custom Validator Have To Be Used With The Validator Callout Extender

Jul 6, 2010

I have a validator callout extender that works, it shows the callout box. But, it does a postback. It didn't do a post back the first time I clicked the button but it did for subsequent times. I read on the AJAX site that a custom validator must be used with this for it to work. I'm currently using this with a required field and regular expression validator. It works, the callout appears, but it doesn't work every time with out the post back.I posted this to see if there is a way to get this to work with a required field and regular expression validator, with out using a custom validator. I'm using the newest release of the toolkit, so I thought the documentation may be old, since the callout is appearing.

Custom Server Controls :: Custom Validator Client-side Validation Cannot Work?

I've been trying to get a custom validator component working that ensures at least one checkbox from a checkboxlist has been checked. I've been used some code I found on but the client-side validation didn't work. I've been attempting to modify it to get the client-side javascript validation to work with no luck. Basically, I compile the below code into a DLL and add it to my bin folder.

Custom Server Controls :: Custom Control's Constructor / User To Set That variable In The Properties Window After They Drag The Control Onto A Form?

Mar 4, 2010

I have a custom control which inherit from the Table class and in the constructor, it takes a an integer as an argument. There is no empty constructor.

Is there a way for the user to set that variable in the properties window after they drag the control onto a form.

I know some .NET controls, you can set the source for the parameter to different things like another control's property, QueryString using just the properties window.

Right now, I have to create the control dynamically. I read the query string and then created the object.

Set Width Of Custom Validator

Feb 11, 2010

Does anybody know of a way to set the width of a custom validtor so that the error message text will wrap if it exceeds the specified width? I have a user control that contains a custom validator which the containing page can set the error message on based on specific validation results. he user control sits within a table cell in a page. If the message is very long it simply prints the entire message on a single line ignoring any column widths that are set. I have tried setting the width property on the custom validator itself to no avail.

MVC :: How And When Custom Model Validator Is Used

Apr 29, 2010

I am trying to understand a little more about implementing a custom model validator. I have implemented a custom model validator (derived from DataAnnotationsModelValidator<T>) for my custom validation attribute in order to do validation on the client side as well. There is not much documented about DataAnnotationsModelValidator. Besides, implementing client-side validation when is it a good idea or needed to implement a custom model validator for a custom attribute?

A separate question - in trying to understand how and when a custom model validator is used by the framework I noticed that my custom validator is always created with the context (2nd parameter in DataAnnotationsModelValidator<T>'s constructor) being a ViewContext, although it is declared as ControllerContext. Will a validator ever be created with something else than a ViewContext, and if so, when?

Custom Validator For MaxLength Property Of Textarea

May 16, 2010

I have quite a few text area's on my page and am wanting to limit the number of characters for each one. However each one should be able to have its own maxlength (i.e. one could be 20 characters and the other could be 100 characters). My validation on the page is all done using custom validation as the built in validation of .NET is not extensible enough for me to display my validation errors how I want to display them. So this is what im wanting to do:

Make a custom validatorPass a MaxLength value from the custom validator into the javascript function, this value must also be accessible from the code behindI can then run client side and server side validation on each textbox control. The problem I am having is passing a MaxLength value to client side script and to server side. Is there a property on custom validators which I can use to pass values around? For instance in Javascript I would want the value of the MaxLength and also the id of the Div which will show the characters remaining, and server side I would need to know the MaxLength. I have done lots of research on this and cannot seem to find an answer.
