Since I'm new to coding and I'm trying to understand why here is a little more detail on the question.If you have a text box and you are limiting the input to say 2 charactrs do you really need to validate the input further? What I have is a text box that has a max length of 2. Is there a security reason to add a validator to the textbox. I should add this is in Asp.net.
I have a textbox that I want the user to enter an integer in.1) I have created a required field validator, to ensure it is not left blank.2) A compare validator, to ensure the value entered is an integer using datatypecheck.3) A range validator to limit the range of the entered integer.If a letter is entered, instead of an integer, errors from both 2) and 3) are displayed.Is there a way to only show the error from 2) if a letter is entered and 3) if the integer is out of range - rather than both?
If I want to validate that a text box contains an integer greater than or equal to zero. Do I need to use TWO asp:CompareValidator controls: one with a DataTypeCheck operator and one with a GreaterThanEqual operator?
Or is the datatype operator redundant? Can I just use a single validator with the GreaterThanEqual operator (and the type set to Integer)?
I have a textbox called "tax rate" which I need to validate the input... The only thing I need to ensure is that the value entered is a number (decimals ok of course). eg. the input might be "8.75" How do I write the validation expression?
In one of webforms user must enter the percent of tax and then I convert it to the float number and finally save it into database. here is a sample:
Dim txtMyPercent txtMyPercent=Convert.ToSingle(txtPercent.text) label.text=txtMyPercent insert into(txtmypercent)
This peice of code, works perefect while runs via Visual Studio 2010, however after publishing, numbers are converted to integer. Thus it can't be inserted into Sql server database .... Server OS: Windows 2003 x64 IIS: 6 .Net Framework: 4.0
VS2008 c#, asp.net 3.5, ms sql 2008How do I validate user input in TextBox inside a FormView [Insert Mode] with MS SQL 2008 Database?* FormView #fvInsertProjectInfo* TextBox #txtProjectNameCurrently, user could insert a new project using the FormView, but will only be found out that the project is already existed when pressing the INSERT button. To make it more user friendly, I would like to check that the database does not contain a record of the project the user trying to insert (by comparing value in txtProjectName with the Projects table in the database)
I'm trying to validate an integer range with a CustomValidator. The range is set dynamically, so when either the min/max values on my usercontrol change, the client validation function is updated. However, I can't get the validation function to fire. I have this code:
I want to use a RequiredFieldValidator to ensure that the client has selected a star and if not return an error message to my validation summary.but the validator seems to be throwing an exception. How do I do this?
I was planning on using a custom validator but it seems that the validation function only gets called when something is written on the textBox i'm using has the 'control to validate'. Now, that doesn't work for me since I want to show an error message when both text boxes are empty. Is there a way to make the validation function to be called with, for example a postback? Or is there any other better approach to this case than the custom validator?
I am always thinking about validation in any kind on the webpage (PHP or ASP, it doesn't matter), but never find a good and accurate answer. For example, a I have some GET-Parameter, which defines a SQL query like DESC oder ASC. (SQL-Injection?) Or I have a comment-function for user, where the data is also saved in a database.
Is it enought to check for HTML-tags inside the data? Should the validation done before adding it to the database or showing it on the page? I am searching for the ToDo's which should be always performed with any data given from "outside".
I have 1 drop down, 1 text field and 1 command button i.e. "Search". Dropdown contrains following values
Type1 Type2 Type3
In textbox user will enter numeric or alphanumeric value
Here I want to check if 'Type1' is selected so user can enter only numeric value between 1000 and 2000, otherwise display some message "Entered value is not valid for "Type1". I want to display this message thru required validator error message property
If user select 'Type1' and 'Type2' then user can enter any alphanumeric value other than 1000-2000 numeric range.
I want to implement thru Search button or once user leave the textbox after entering value. Here I want to display message.
I aam working with textChanged event in a textbox to validate a value in textbox.hen i am enter data in textbox then press submit button i am getting validation summary before the textbox textchanged event. Is there anyway to fire textchanged event first to validate before button validation summary?
