Custom Validator


I need to validate a field that depends from a selection of a dropdownlist.

Like, if on dropdown the selected value is 'N' then validate. But it it's 'S', ignores validation;

Is there a way to do this with custom validator ??

I tried but, it's not working.

function chkEndereco(source, args){
   var cmbOnde = $('select[id$=comboOnde]');
   if(cmbOnde.val() == 'N')
      args.IsValid = (args.Value == '')
   if(cmbOnde.val() == 'S')
     args.IsValid = true

<asp:TextBox ID="Endereco" name="endereco" runat="server" AutoCompleteType="none" autocomplete="off" />
                                    <ajaxToolKit:TextBoxWatermarkExtender ID="wmEndereco" runat="server" TargetControlID="Endereco" WatermarkText="Endereço (rua, avenida, etc)" />
                                    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="rqEndereco" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Ops! Faltou o endereço." EnableClientScript="true" ControlToValidate="Endereco" Display="None"/>
                                    <asp:CustomValidator ID="crqEndereco" runat="server" ErrorMe

Creating a Validator class for a custom activity

I created a new Workflow Activity Library and then added a new Activity called BindForm2Activity. After that I added a new class called BindForm2Validator and then placed an attribute to the BindForm2Activity to link it to the validator class.   Here is the code for each of the classes:   BindForm2Activity.xoml.cs: Code Snippet   using System;using System.ComponentModel;using System.ComponentModel.Design;using System.Collections;using System.Drawing;using System.Linq;using System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Compiler;using System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Serialization;using System.Workflow.ComponentModel;using System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Design;using System.Workflow.Runtime;using System.Workflow.Activities;using System.Workflow.Activities.Rules; using FormsCollection;using Utils; namespace ActivityLibrary{    [ActivityValidator(typeof(BindForm2Validator))] public partial class BindForm2Activity : SequenceActivity {        public static DependencyProperty FormToBindProperty = System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty.Register("FormToBind", typeof(FormsCollection.Form2), typeof(BindForm2Activity));         [Description("Form to bind a datasource to it ")]        [Category("BindForm2ToDataSource")]        [Browsable(true)]        [DesignerSerializationVisibility(DesignerSerializationVisibility.Visible)]        public FormsCollection.Form2 Form

Custom Validator on DDL&Textbox values

I need to write a 2 custom validators that works as follows: I have a formview (Formview1) with an EditItemTemplate. The validators need to validate values in "DropDownList1" and a textbox called "EndUserGUIDTextBox" If the value in DDL1 is ("Assigned" or "Assigned to End User") and the value of EndUserGUIDTextBox is ("unassigned" or "pending" or NULL) then I need a validator to fire and return {"GUID must be assigned when status is" & DLL1 value}. If the value in DDL1 is ("In Stock" or "In Repair") and EndUserGUIDTextBox is NOT ("unassigned" or "pending" or NULL), then I need a validator to fire and return {"GUID must not be assigned when status is" & DLL1 Value}. The validators needs to run and show in the formview when the UpdateButton in my Formview is clicked. I'm doing this in VB. Real noobie here! All help appreciated. Thanks,

CacheMetadata is not called when a custom activity is placed inside a flowchart

I wrote a simple Native activity which implements CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata metadata) to declare arguments and variables. The activity works great but when I tried to use it inside a flowchart activity I found out that CacheMetadata is not called by visual studioo when the activity is dragged from the toolbox into the flow chart . This of course prevents my activity from working correctly. How can a custom activity be used inside a flowchart activity if CacheMetadata not called? Is there a way to make CacheMetadata run when the custom activity is placed inside a flowchart activity? Thanks Manu    

custom validator firring on text changed

Validator inside DetailsView always renders on a new line


I have the following markup:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Name" SortExpression="Name">
<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server" />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="valName" runat="server"
ErrorMessage="Name required." ControlToValidate="txtName"

The Validator text appears on a new line immediately after the TextBox.  I would like it to appear immediately after the TextBox (i.e. to the right of it).

I've tried two things to fix this:

1. I put the markup on the same line, e.g.:

<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server" /><asp:RequiredFieldValidator ... />

2. I tried putting the TextBox and Validator in the same html table cell.

Both strategies failed.  Any other ideas out there?  I appreciate your help!

Custom Validator and Postback


Hello frnds

I have used custom validator in my asp.net website

I am using server side validation 

my page contains a textbox (txtName), and 2 combobox (CmbState and CmbCity) and some more controls

Now i want to validate my page using custom validator only when save button is clicked.

one of my combobox has implemented SelectedIndexChanged event. so whenever i change a value in that combobox, instead of firing SelectedIndexChanged event, my validation is fired and it is displaying error message of custome validator.

i want to do validation only when save button is clicked and not when postback is done by any of my controls on that page.

How can i do this? is there any way to do this?



Custom Validator



I have a C# web form (within a master page) and textbox - how do I validate it so that any input has to have a "AR" or "BR" prefix. I have started something along these lines:

                ARF Number
                <asp:CustomValidator ID="ValidatorArf" runat="server" ErrorMessage="PMO Ref!" ClientValidationFunction="jSValidate"
                    ControlToValidate="TextBoxArfNo" ValidationGroup="ValidationGroupCreateDesign"></asp:CustomValidator>
                <asp:TextBox ID="TextBoxArfNo" runat="server" MaxLength="50" />

Is this the best way forward? How do I write the validation script?

Thanks in advance!

Custom control inside a GridView


Hi All,

I have created a custom pager control for implementing paging which has four link buttons, two textboxes and two buttons in it. I have derived that control from a Panel and have implmented the INamingContainer and IPostBackDataHandler interfaces.

Every time I click on either LinkButtons or on buttons, the page gets posted back to the server and the LoadPostData method of IPostBackDataHandler gets called (as expected). But, the click event of the control that is cliked gets fired every alternate time.

E.g.: If I click on the LinkButton named 'First' for the first time, the click event handler will execute. Next time when I click on the same LinkButton, only the LoadPostData will get executed. Again, when I click on the same LinkButton, the event handler will execute properly. This pattern remains the same for all the buttons.

Please let me know if any one has encountered such a situation and what can be a solution to it.
