Required Field Validation on Tabbing

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hello Friends,

I have Textbox-A and Textbox-B. Textbox-A is mandatory. 

If a user comes to Textbox-A and without entering anything if he moves to next available control (Textbox-B) either by tabbing or by moving the cursor,

error message should be displayed.

Could anyone of you please help me by telling in which event to write the validation.

Looking forward to hear from you ASAP.

Thanks in Advance

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     {

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.

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

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

Required Field in Document Library

Say in a document library, you have custom required field and during file upload you didn't enter values for the required field. Now if you try to checkin the file from library item listing view, an runtime exception is thrown "You must fill out all required properties before checking in this document". In that case the expected behavior would be to show the edit window asking user to enter values for required fields. The error is reported on the thread here . The error is described more elaborately in this blog . Has anyone experienced the error before? Is it already reported issue?   Thanks, Sohel Rana http://ranaictiu-technicalblog.blogspot.com

An object reference is required for the nonstatic field, method, or property 'object.GetType()'


I'm getting this error, what i'm missing?

error: An object reference is required for the nonstatic field, method, or property 'object.GetType()'


static public void RegisterScriptMethod(System.Web.UI.Page page, string methodName, string methodBody)


StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();


"<script language='javascript'>");


"function " + methodName + " {" + methodBody + "}");



//page.RegisterClientScriptBlock(methodName, sb.ToString());

Cannot upload file : 'You must specify a value for the required field'



In any web app, any Sharepoint site, and any document library in my farm (WSS 3.0, Sharepoint Designer 2007), I can't upload any file :

I can select my file in my hard drive with the browse button, but when I click OK button, I get this message :

'You must specify a value for the required field '

I think it's a required field which is hidden : I found 2 required fields, description and name (name is the file path so is mandatory). Changing description's required property didn't solve the problem.

I made a lot of change in a lot of file such as customization and configuration.

Replacing upload.aspx and application.master files with files from a working farm didn't solve the problem too...

However I don't have any problem when adding attachments in announcements ...

Having a Sharepoint site where you can't upload any file in a library is a big problem and I don't find any solution !

Thanks in advance.
