Make Custom Validators Produce Alert

Mar 3, 2010

All ASP.Net client validation messages can be shown as an alert by setting the ShowMessageBox="True" property on the ValidationSummary control. This works fine for anything that happens on the client.

For the custom validators that validate server-side I had assumed that what would happen is that when the page is returned to the browser, ASP.Net would inject some javascript to show the alert box. However this isnt the case.

If you had relied on the message box to show detail and just have a * next to the erroneous field (as per my clients req's) then it wont work as intended. Does anyone have a solution for doing this? What I want is a way to possibly override the ValidationSummary control to inject javascript onto the page or something like this.

Web Forms :: Make Validators Red Again In .net 4?

Jan 11, 2011

I recently upgraded my web app to .net 4 and was surprised to see that the validator controls are no longer red. People are calling up all confused because they can't see the error messages now.Any idea how to fix this in one go? I know I can do a kludge like forecolor=red on every single validator control, but that's ugly. I don't want to go back to <pages controlRenderingCompatabilityVersion="3.5" /> because it's time to move forward, but I do want validator controls people can actually see.

Custom Server Controls :: Add This Control To The Page,an Alert To Check The Text Value Of The Custom Control?

Dec 20, 2010

created a Custom Textbox Control that is intended to be a "masked date" textbox, so that I can handle different ways a user might enter in a date and make it work no matter what.I did this by creating a custom control with 3 separate Textboxes one for month,one for day one for year,then do some handling for different things that could be entered and it would all work.

The problem I am having is,when I add this control to the page,if I do an alert to check the Text value of the custom control it just gives me "[ServerControl1]" even if I enter in a date.

I tried doing an AutoPostback after entering so that it would refesh the Viewstate to have the values of the textboxes but the control doesnt seem to actually postback, even though I have it enabled.accessing the Textbox value after someoen
has entered a date?first custom control I have created and have been using google.

My Server Control Code is as follows:

Web Forms :: Adding Validators To Custom Controls?

Jan 15, 2010

I'm attempting to create a custom control that extends the Table class. Inside of the table will be rendered a number of different controls based on a specified identifying property. On some of these controls, however, I need to specify validation for data types and requirement. To me, the most logical way of doing so is to add validators to the table and set their appropriate properties to specify which controls to validate. In doing so, however, I've discovered that none of the validators added will even render on the page in which the control is added. So is this a valid construct?

Here's an example of what I mean:


End result? No validation. So what's the move?

Create Custom Data Annotation Validators?

Aug 5, 2010

Wanting to create custom data annotation validation. Are there any useful guides / samples on how to create them?

Firstly: StringLength with minimum and maximum length. I'm aware .NET 4 can do this, but want to do the same in .NET 3.5, if possible being able to define minimum length only (at least x chars), maximum length only (up to x chars), or both (between x and y chars).

Secondly: Validation using modulus arithmetic - if the number is a valid length, I wish to validate using the Modulus 11 algorithm (I have already implemented it in JavaScript, so I guess it would just be a simple porting?)

Update: Solved second problem, was just a case of copying over the JavaScript implementation and making a few tweaks, so don't need a solution for that.

Web Forms :: How To Find A Custom Validators On Checkbox List

Jun 17, 2010

I would like to find a way of running custom validation on a checkbox list. The reason why is because they were a radiobutton list. Then our client decided they wanted to be able to uncheck them (without a clear button) so in the end I had to change them to checkbox lists and make them mutually exclusive. On some of them, one must be selected and I downloaded this: [URL] to set them as required - worked nicely. Perhaps there's a way of building on this further to create some sort of custom checkbox validation. why I need this custom validation is because when the built form checkbox list = flat or maisonette then floor level is then required.

C# - Custom Validators In Development - Clean Versus Efficient

Mar 24, 2011

I'm working on a page that has a significant number of textboxes/dropdowns/etc to fill out. The majority of these are going to be performing some sort of custom validation. I should note that it's nothing of substantial size - all just string or integer values.

I always hear (and have typically always agreed) that as much validation should be performed on the client rather than on the server, but in this case I am unsure. The difference here is that this project will be passed on to an IT guy who knows about computers but is still new to programming - he will be the one in charge of making the minor updates and changes to the way these custom validations work in the future.

My idea shifted from being as efficient as possible to being a bit less efficient but much more readable. I created a new class specifically for all of my validations which will be used throughout the website. By forcing all of my custom validation code in this class, though, I eliminate any client-side validations I might be able to perform. I should also note that each page that requires a custom validation will generally need to perform at least one server-side validation, so I will never be able to use client-side 100%

Considering the relatively low level of activity on the website (currently and in the future), would you consider this as an acceptable solution? Or would you ALWAYS prefer to have as much validation on the client as possible in order to increase the responsiveness, even if it makes things a bit more messy for whoever may be working on it in the future?

C# - How To Make Sure A String Is Clean For Insertion Into Javascript Alert('error Message')

Jun 24, 2010

I am trying to display an error to the user of a web page using a javascript alert popup, I currently have the following code to clean the error string:

errorMessage.Replace("'", "'")

But this is not sufficient as some illegal characters are not being removed, is there a static method somewhere in the framework that will format my string for clean insertion into html?Update: my initial question was slightly ambiguous. the string needs to be valid as in alert('this is some 'illegal text' that will not popup');I will try Server.HtmlEncode, hopefully it will do the trick.

Inheriting From DataSourceControl Doesn't Produce IDataSource

Feb 15, 2010

I am trying to create a custom datasource control. I have been following this article to the letter (I think...). I have a skeleton / basic implementation of my datasource, however when I declare it in the markup and try to statically bind it to a gridview, I receive the following error:

The DataSourceID of 'grdVw' must be the ID of a control of type IDataSource

This seems extremely strange to me, since my datasource inherits from DataSourceControl, which in turn implements IDataSource. Even if I explicitly implement IDataSource in my custom datasource, it makes no difference. My Markup is:

<DataBrokerDataSource ID="objSrcDBroker" runat="server" />
<asp:GridView ID="grdVw" DataSourceID="objSrcDBroker" DataMember="Table0" runat="server">
<asp:GridView id="grdVw2" DataSourceID="objSrcDBroker" DataMember="Table1" runat="server">

And my control is:

Public Class DataBrokerDataSource
Inherits DataSourceControl
Implements IDataSource 'Have tried with this statement included AND excluded = same result
Protected Overrides Function GetView(ByVal viewName As String) As System.Web.UI.DataSourceView Implements IDataSource.GetView
'Code here
End Function
Protected Overrides Function GetViewNames() As System.Collections.ICollection Implements IDataSource.GetViewNames
'Code here
End Function
End Class

Looking at the stack trace shows that the error originates at:

I have examined this method in reflector (see below), looking at this (based on the error message that I am getting) it appears to me as though the FindControl part is succeeding but that the source = control as IDataSource; leaves source as a null value, i.e. the conversion fails - But Why?

protected virtual IDataSource GetDataSource()
if ((!base.DesignMode && this._currentDataSourceValid) && (this._currentDataSource != null))
return this._currentDataSource;
IDataSource source = null;
string dataSourceID = this.DataSourceID;
if (dataSourceID.Length != 0)
Control control = DataBoundControlHelper.FindControl(this, dataSourceID);
if (control == null)
throw new HttpException(SR.GetString("DataControl_DataSourceDoesntExist", new object[] { this.ID, dataSourceID }));
source = control as IDataSource;
if (source == null)
throw new HttpException(SR.GetString("DataControl_DataSourceIDMustBeDataControl", new object[] { this.ID, dataSourceID }));

Produce Trial Version For Customers To Download?

I've written a ASP.NET app that I hope to sell to businesses, I could host the trial but it's designed to connect to the customers data so customers will certainly want to install it to do a successful evaluation.

I've never produced anything commercial before so I'm looking for advice on how best to limit the trial, a 30 day trial seems most common, do you simply rely on the clock of the PC/Server they install it on? keep in mind this is ASP.NET app so will be installed on their web server.
