AJAX ComboBox - required field validator

Hi All, I want to put validation on a combobox to ensure user selects/enters a value. I've tried using a the standard required field validator which doesn't work. So I would like to do the validation using javascript/jquery. Not sure how to approach. When I look at how the combo box is rendered, it appears as a unordered html list. There is also a hidden field but this always seems to be set to 0. So is it possible to do this validation client side. I've read so many posts about this but I havn't got an answer yet. Am I on the wrong path here? Any ideas? Thanks

disable required field validator at server side


Hi everyone,

my question is very simple. I had read through many post include this: http://blog.anasghanem.com/post/How-to-get-the-readonly-textbox-value-on-the-server-.aspx

I have a calender extender and the date was target to a texbox. This textbox, i had set it to readonly and it is validate by a required field validator. so mean this texbox must have a value inside. my prob is, i bind the textbox to database and if data is NULL or empty i can't save it because the required field validator was validate textbox as empty value at cllient side. If i remove the required field validator everthing fine. But this is not i want. I have try to set the textbox to javascript onCopy,onPaste,onkeyup. but user also can delete and paste into the textbox.

i have think to disable the requried field validtor at server side when data is inserted. Anyone know how?

Viewmodel property not set to [Required] yet getting error message saying it is?


I have a viewmodel that i use for my view

public int SelectionId{ get; set; }        
public IEnumerable<Selections> Selections { get; set; }

Notice that SelectionId is not decorated with [Required]. In my view, i use DropDownFor like this:

<%= Html.DropDownListFor(m => m.SelectionId, new SelectList(Model.Selections, "Id", "Name"), "--- Select ---")%>

It should be possible to not select anything from the dropdown, resulting in model.SelectionId = 0, which is fine. Why do i get a "SelectionId field is required" error when i Post?  If i do this:

<%= Html.DropDownList(mySelectionId, new SelectList(Model.Selections, "Id", "Name"), "--- Select ---")%>

I no longer get the error if i dont select anything, which is what i want - but no way to bind it to the id if the user does select something

thanks for any help!

Custom Field Control 'not registered as safe'


Hi all,


my goal is to create a custom field control based on a custom field, to be part of a custom content type which derives from a publishing page. Also I want the custom field control to be part of a custom page layout which is associated with my custom content type.


I followed the steps from Patrick Tisseghems book 'Inside MOSS2007', which includes the following instructions:


  • Create and implement the following classes: CustomField, CustomFieldValue, CustomFieldControl. Sign them and deploy the assembly to the GAC.
  • Create a User Control Custom.ascx. Copy it to Controltemplates directory.
  • Create fldtypes_custom.xml and copy to 12\TEMPLATE\XML
  • Add <SafeControl /> entry to web.config

I did of all the above plus I created a page layout in SharePoint Designer which contains an instance of my CustomFieldControl.


When I create an instance of CustomPage (derived content type from Publishing Page, with extra field of type CustomField) with my custom page layout and add it to the Pages library of my Publishing site, everything seems to go fine. When i edit properties of the page with /Pages/Forms/EditForm.aspx I can even edit the custom field value trough the interface using mu custom field control! Everything seems to work perfectly!


But... this

Set up a validator that compare the value of the current field with an other (using Dynamic Data)

Hi! Most of it is in the title : I'd like have a validator on the DateTime_Edit template for example that allows to compare this field with an other DateTime field. My problem is when I am in the DateTime_Edit template of my "master field" (the one I want to check), how can I access to the other field given the architecture of Dynamic Data FieldTemplates? But perhaps I'm not thinking in a good way on this control. Any advice will be welcome. Thanks Raphaelp

ws-addressing 'Action' required message part not signed exception

I have a WCF client calling a Java-based service. The service vendor is supporting WCF clients. The WCF client binding uses authenticationMode="MutualCertificate", messageVersion="Soap11WSAddressing10" and the message is signed and encrypted (SignBeforeEncrypt). WCF, in this case, is automatically signing all the ws-addressing ( <Action>, <MessageID> and <To> ) headers. The message gets to the service and comes back with what appears to be valid encrypted data in the response BUT the client is throwing a "The 'Action', 'http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing' required message part was not signed" exception (mscorlib). Questions: Is there a way to NOT sign the ws-addressing headers in the request message while still using both signing and encryption (X.509 certs)? If the client DOES sign the ws-addressing headers in the request, is there a way to configure WCF to accept UNsigned ws-addressing headers in the response? If the answer is NO on both questions, I guess I will have to ask the service vendor to sign the ws-addressing headers in the response. Thanks.
