Web Forms :: Custom Validation Only Works For FileUpload Control

Oct 12, 2010

I have 2 custom validator controls on my page but for some strange reason the Custom Validator for FileUpload control works and the custom validator for TextBox control does not work. Here is the aspx code:

<asp:FileUpload ID="_fileCv" runat="server" Width="500px" /><br />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="_rfvFileCv" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Resume; " ControlToValidate="_fileCv" SetFocusOnError="True" ValidationGroup="APPLY">
<img src="images/mandatory.gif" alt="Required" /></asp:RequiredFieldValidator
<asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1" runat="server" ControlToValidate="_fileCv"
ErrorMessage="Max file size for documents is 4MB." OnServerValidate="CustomValidator1_ServerValidate" ValidationGroup="APPLY"></asp:CustomValidator>
<asp:TextBox ID="_txtHealthComments" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="5" Width="500" />
<asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator2" runat="server" ControlToValidate="_txtHealthComments"
ErrorMessage="Kindly enter health Comments ." OnServerValidate="CustomValidator2_ValidateHealth" ValidationGroup="APPLY"></asp:CustomValidator>

Here is the code behind:
protected void CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args) {
if (_fileCv.FileBytes.Length > 4194304) {
args.IsValid = false;
} else { args.IsValid = true; } }
protected void CustomValidator2_ValidateHealth(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args) {
if (_rdoHealth.SelectedValue == "1" && _txtHealthComments.Text == "") {
args.IsValid = false; } else { args.IsValid = true; } }

FileUpload Control Works On Server But Not For Clients

Oct 18, 2010

I have a strange thing going on with the .net fileupload control. If I remote desktop to the server that houses the web app and db server, I am able to upload files and store them into a varbinary(max) column.

However, when clients connect to the web server from their desktop, then can do all the things they need to such as browsing web pages, fill out forms that store/save data to the database, etc.

However, when they try to upload a pdf to the sever, the following exception occurs: The web app uses .net 3.5, the db is sql 2005, and code is c#. And insights would be welcomed. Code and Exception below.

Web Forms :: File Extension Validation In FileUpload Control?

Jun 23, 2010

Actually i am using JavaScript validation for Image or Word or Excel File & its working perfectly. My aim is making its full professional.

For Example When you use Photoshop and open any file you see only those extension which are applicable for Photoshop i.e. jpg, jpeg bmp, psd, png etc. You never see .doc, .xls or any other which are not open with Photoshop. This is i want to do, When i open for an Image it should show only Image Type file extension in file type By default its its showing All Files, As i use extension validation in JavaScript, it never accept .doc or .xls files in Image Type Validation but it will show. I want only that file type show for which i open.

C# - Apply Client Side Validation On Fileupload Control To Check Filename Contain Special Character?

May 24, 2010

I am working on ASP.NET3.5 platform. I have used a file upload control and a asp button to upload a file. Whenever i try to upload a file which contain special characterlike (file#&%.txt) it show crash and give the messeage "Server Error in 'myapplication' Application." A potentially dangerous Request.Files value was detected from the client (filename="...New Text &#.txt"). Description: Request Validation has detected a potentially dangerous client input value, and processing of the request has been aborted. This value may indicate an attempt to compromise the security of your application, such as a cross-site scripting attack. You can disable request validation by setting validateRequest=false in the Page directive or in the configuration section. However, it is strongly recommended that your application explicitly check all inputs in this case.

Exception Details: System.Web.HttpRequestValidationException: A potentially dangerous Request.Files value was detected from the client (filename="...New Text &#.txt"). Source Error: An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below. how can i prevent this crash using javascript at client side?

Web Forms :: Validating Input In A Custom User Control Using Jquery Validation Plugin?

Jun 18, 2010

I have a custom user control with some input fields and a submit button. I need to validate the fields using the jquery validation plugin when the submit button is clicked. (The function of the submit button is to create another custom control which displays the data entered in the above mentioned control)

Bt as far as I knw, validation plugin works only with form validation ryt? And my custom control does not contain a form tag as I am using master pages. The custom control is present in one of the content pages and the master page already contains a form tag with a runat=server attribute. And I guess one page can contain only a single form tag with runat=server attrib ryt?

So how do I get it to work?

C# - Custom Control Doesn't Fire Validation

Jun 4, 2010

I've written a custom ASP.net control that descends from LinkButton and overrides the Render() method. I'm using it to replace ImageButtons in the site I'm working on so we don't have to have an image for each button. This control works fine, does the required post-backs etc., however it doesn't fire the validators in its validation group. This is obviously an issue. The code for the control is (condensed) as follows:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

public class CustomButton : LinkButton
public string SpanCssClass { get; set; }
protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
if (!Visible)
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Name, UniqueID);
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Id, ClientID);
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Class, CssClass);
string postback = string.IsNullOrEmpty(OnClientClick) ? "javascript:__doPostBack('" + UniqueID + "','');" : OnClientClick;
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Href, postback);
writer.AddAttribute(HtmlTextWriterAttribute.Class, SpanCssClass);

Does anyone know why this would not be causing the validators to fire? I was under the impression that leaving all the other methods in LinkButton un-overridden would leave all the other functionality the same.

C# - Add A Validation Support To DropDownList By Creating A Custom Control?

Feb 2, 2011

I'm trying to add a validation support to DropDownList by creating a custom control inheriting from DropDownList:

public class MyDropDown: DropDownList, INamingContainer
private const string ValidatorID = "Validator";
private RequiredFieldValidator _validator;


My class implements INamingContainer because I wanted to avoid naming conflicts. Unfortunately when I try using this control I get the following exception:

Unable to find control id 'MDD' referenced by the 'ControlToValidate' property of 'MDD_Validator'

This is happening beause for INamingContainer FindControl(NamingContainerId) returns null.

When I remove INamingContainer implementation and set validator ID in the following way:

_validator.ID = String.Format("{0}_{1}", ID, ValidatorID);

Everything is working fine, and id given to Validator is the same as it would be inside Naming container.

But is there a way to accomplish this WITH INamingContainer ?

Custom TextBox Control With Built-in Client-side Validation?

Jan 30, 2011

I have a textbox in my application which has multiple validation on it e.g. RequiredFieldValidator, RegexValidation and CustomValidation. My page has several similar textboxes. So I just copy-paste and change id and controltovalidate properties and it is working.

Since similar tbxs are going to be used on another page as well, I think it would be nice to create my own custom TextBox control with built-in validation.

Here are two approaches I have found and tried:

1: Implement from IValidator perform my custom validation in Validate Method. As shown here: Self-Validating TextBox But it does not show how to implement client-side validation.

2: Create custom control that derives from TextBox and add asp.net built-in validators I need. As shown here:Custom TextBox. I tried the code and it works server/client side.

I like the first approach but don't know how to implement client-side validation. I know I need a client-side js function. I can do that. I know how to include my js file using Page.ClientScript class but don't know how to integrate all together and make it work.

I can create a UserControl or the second approach above but for now I am specifically looking to learn and implement client-side validation from custom control.

C# - How To Make XHTML Validation Happy When Using Custom System.Web.UI.Control

Aug 28, 2010

I am sure this question has been asked and answered; but I haven't managed to find it...

I am creating a very simple custom System.Web.UI.Control that has a few properties. I can define in my ASPX page the following tag and everything is happy:

<ns:MyControl runat="server" MyProperty="Value" />

However, if I want to have one or more "child" properties, like so:

<ns:MyControl runat="server" MyProperty="Value">
<Element AnotherProperty="AnotherValue1" />
<Element AnotherProperty="AnotherValue2" />

what I need to do to make the XHTML validate. I always have

Content is not allowed between the opening and closing tag of element 'XXX'

Element 'XXX' is not supported

The name contains uppercase characters, which is not allowed

The code actually runs as expected, but I haven't manged to find a good example on how to do this correctly so that everything validates. In terms of implementation of the Custom Control, I just have all properties stubbed out at the moment, and looks something like:

public class MyControl : Control[code]....

Ultimately, Element is intended to build up a collection of Elements. Any insight on how to do this properly and have the XHTML validate
