ASP.NET Validation Controls tutorials

  • An important aspect of creating ASP.NET Web pages for user input is to be able to check that the information users enter is valid.

  • ASP.NET provides a set of validation controls that provide an easy-to-use but powerful way to check for errors and, if necessary, display messages to the user.

  • There are six types of validation controls in ASP.NET

    1. RequiredFieldValidation Control

    2. RangeValidator Control

    3. CompareValidator Control

    4. RegularExpressionValidator Control

    5. CustomValidator Control

    6. ValidationSummary


 The Standard Validation Controls

  • The five validation controls ultimately all inherit from the same base class, and thus share some common behavior. Four of the five validation controls operate in the same way, and contain built-in behavior that allows you to validate associated controls. The last control, the CustomValidator allows you write custom functionality that is not supported out of the box.

  • The following table lists the properties that are shared by the validation controls and that you commonly use when working with validation controls.





This property determines whether the hidden error message takes up space or not. With the Display set to Static, the error message takes up screen estate, even when it is hidden.


This property allows you to set the CSS class that is applied to the

error message text.


This property refers to the error message for the validation control

used in the ValidationSummary control. When the Text property is

empty, the ErrorMessage value is also used as the text that appears

on the page.


The Text property is used as the text that the validation control displays on the page. This could be an asterisk (*) to indicate an error or a required field, or text like “Please enter your name.”


This property contains the ID of the control that needs to be validated.


This property gets or sets a setting that determines whether the control provides validation at the client. The default is True.


This property determines whether client-side script gives the focus to

the first control that generated an error. This setting is False by default.


Validation controls can be grouped together, allowing you to perform

validation against a selection of controls. All controls with the same

ValidationGroup are checked at the same time, which means that

controls that are not part of that group are not checked.


You don’t typically set this property at design time, but at runtime it

provides information about whether the validation test has passed.
