wizard control validation

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

 I'm using a wizard control and on step 1 I need to do some valdiation prior to the user going to the next step. I have a JS file that I'm using on other web forms (not using the wizard), and I want to use that file as well.


How can I call that js file to do my validation of my form using the wizard?

also, I have 2 checkboxes on my form in the wizard control step 1, and 1 has to be checked, what is the best way to validate that prior to the user going to step 2?

Cutting Edge: The ASP.NET 2.0 Wizard Control


ASP.NET has a lot to offer to both the low-level programmer willing to control every little step of the code and the busiest of developers who needs to point-and-click his way through Web app development using just a few existing components.

Validation Control Query



I've read that if you put a validation control on a page it performs the validation on the client AND server side.

My question is, if you've got a button's click event and you put code in there that puts submitted data into a database, how will the validation controls stop the data being inserted?

Is validation simply performed before anything else, then the page just stops?

Problem with Wizard Control



I have a wizard, which contains a series of custom user controls as steps. Also I am using the step navigation template to add in the navigation buttons.

However, due to some steps needing a little time to load fully due to web service calls and having to add some dynamic steps, I would like to disable the navigation buttons until the next step has been loaded and change the text on the "Next Button" to "loading...". Is there away I can do this perhaps with JavaScript or is there away I could do this with an AJAX control? If so, does anyone have an example I could use?


Why is there no wizard control in WPF? Is there an easy way to create one, like with the TabControl

Hello, First, NO THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS!  In my search, it seems like anyone asking for a wizard control is sent to a third party to buy it.  I have no interest in buying a third party product, so if you are one of those that would suggest it, please don't, I'm simply not interested. If my understanding of page framework is correct, that is, the page is within a separate XAML file and the events are handled via its code behind, then I am not interested in such a scenario.  Nor am I interested in any fancy plumbing to make page framework work the way I want. All I want is the simple wizard control.  I'm amazed that such an important function was left out of WPF, especially since the TabControl is so close to being a Wizard Control. I'm thinking that the TabControl should be able to be made to function like a wizard, but my search finds nothing of any value.  Is the TabControl not suitable to be made to function like a wizard? Any help (other than third party products) would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Robert

Validation control half disapears in CollapsibelPanel

Hi all,I have a textbox sitting at the bottom of a collapsible panel which has a  RequiredFieldValidator sitting underneath that. If a user tries to submit the form without filling in this textbox then the RequiredFieldValidator generates a little "Required" box beneath the textbox.The trouble is that the panel doesn't resize propely and only the top of the validation warning box is visible so the message isn't legible.I tried adding some margin-bottom to the div that contains the textbox and validator to ensure the space was already there but the moment the validation box appears the collapsible panel automatically resizes so the bottom of the panel meets the bottom of the textbox, ignoring the prior margin.Apart from moving the validation box, does anyone know how I can get the collapsible panel to resize correctly?ThanksVanlightly

Wizard Control textbox data is lost

I'm using a wizard contol with several textbox fields. I have two textbox fields disabled (textbox19 and textbox20)because I don't want the user to change the values that are calculated from the other textboxes (see javascript below). I do this with javascript on the clientside. My problem occurs when the user is in STEP2 and goes back to STEP1 the values in the disabled fields are gone. Is there a way to fix this? I would also like to perform a validation on textbox20 but I haven't been able to do that with the textbox disabled. How can I do validations on a field that is disabled? I've tried enabling the fields and using readonly = true but that doesn't work either. Any suggestions? // Client Side script to do calculations <script type="text/javascript">       function calculateSubTotal() {      var txt6 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox6.ClientID %>');     var txt12 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox12.ClientID %>');     var txt18 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox18.ClientID %>');     var txt14 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox14.ClientID %>');     var txtSubTotal = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox19.Cl

User Control Validation is not working properly

In my Website I have header control (header.ascx) and footer control (footer.ascx)In header.ascx one textbox and one button is there. Textbox meant for accepting search string.In footer.ascx one textbox and one button is there. Textbox meant for accepting Email-Id.Now in validation of header.ascx I had done blank checking by JavaScript. And in validation of footer.ascx  I had done blank-checking and e-mail checking by javascript.In both the control the textbox and the button both resides under Panel control whose DefaultButton property set to the respective button ids. So that if User write write something and press ENTER key from keyboard then it should do whatever respective Button_Clicks will do.Now My problem is suppose I place the mouse cursor in footer.ascx's textbox and press the ENTER key it validates properly but after that if I place the cursor inheader.ascx's textbox and press the ENTER then it is not working. Again If I do the opposite then also first one will fire but in case of second it is not firing .......
