How to use server side validation to ensure image field is not null


I'm having trouble accomplishing the above. Below is all the mark up and code. I'm not getting error messages, but the validate image function is not working (fileupload portion is working ok).

In my attempt below---not sure if it's the simplest or best validation approach anyway---the "UserId" parameter appears during rendering to be empty---but in most methods I have it successfully containing or referring to the logged-in user's identification.

Following is the control that refers to the image field (page = advertisement.aspx):

<asp:Image ID="Image" runat="server" ImageUrl ='<%#Eval("UserId","Image.aspx?UserId={0}") %>'


Following is the successful code behind for the page image.aspx referred to above (page = image.aspx.vb):

Partial Public Class Image

    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Public Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        If Request.QueryString("UserId") IsNot Nothing Then

            ' Get the connection string from Web.config.

Server-side validation on an Entity Framework required field (property) does not work!

Has anyone had issues getting server-side validation on an Entity Framework required field (property) to work? The data type is a string (nvarchar). Server-side validation for required fields of other data types WORK fine. Only string fields have issues. I get the following error on UpdateModel(obj); of my POST method within the controller. Exception Details: System.Data.ConstraintException: This property cannot be set to a  null value.Source Error: Line 4500:                OnTextChanging(value);Line 4501:                ReportPropertyChanging("Text");Line 4502:                _Text = StructuralObject.SetValidValue(value, false);Line 4503:                ReportPropertyChanged("Text");Line 4504:                OnTextChanged(); I've even tried data annotations like this but it seems to get ignored.     [MetadataType(typeof(ObjMD))]     public partial class Obj     {

Active Directory User validation field in ASP.NET

A __ViewState field is being posted to my form and causing validation to fail. How do I ignore this?


I'm implementing a payment gateway, and it basically works like this:

User will do their shopping at my site, and view Cart.aspx. Cart.aspx will post the form to the payment gateway.

The payment gateway will process the payment, and then do a post back to my server at Response.ashx. It posts the details of the credit card transaction, but it will also re-post whatever I gave it. So it is giving me back a __ViewState field. (ViewState, EventValidation, RequestValidation are all disabled on both Cart.aspx, and Order.aspx, which is the page being redirected to.)

Response.ashx has the following code:

public class Response: IHttpHandler, IRequiresSessionState
public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
new ResponsePresenter

public void

Custom Form does not save values if field validation occurred



I have a custom New form that I am having problems with.  If a user inputs all fields, and the form validation doesn't catch any problems, then the list item is saved with no problems.  


If one of the form fields finds a problem such as a required field that wasn't entered or an invalid name in the people picker, then after the user corrects the problem and presses save the list item will get saved without the correct values from the form fields.  The form fields still display the correct information before pressing save, but the list item that was saved does not have the same values as the form fields.


It seems that SharePoint:FormField are fine, but things such as SharePointBig SmileVDropDownList will display the data after a form error, but will no longer keep the form data and therefore it doesn't get saved.


Has anyone else had this problem?  If so then have you found a fix?

Field validation failure on not required/blank drop-down box


I have a column in my list that is based on the records in another SharePoint list. When I try to edit a record in Datasheet View, I frequently get the following validation rule failure message:

The text entered for Client Impacted isn't an item from the list. Select an item from the list, or enter text that matches one of the listed items.

Even though the column appears to be blank to the naked eye, when you double click in the column, it selects what appears to be a space character and when you hit the delete key, it now passes the validation rule. So, my assumption is that the validation rule is saying something like "Space character isn't in the list, so you can't save the record..." Here's what's odd. I do NOT get the same validation rule warning when I edit in standard view and I know for sure that the column has not been erroneously filled with a space character. Anyone have any idea what might be going on here?

Thanks in advance for your help.
