Introduction

Most of the times while submitting forms we need to validate the user input for certain criteria. In ASP there was no other way but to write our own server or client side validation routines. ASP.NET frees the programmer from performing common validation tasks through the use of special web controls called validation controls. These 10 code samples will show you how to use all of the available validation controls.

There are 6 types of validation controls available :

  • RequiredFieldValidator
  • CompareValidator
  • RangeValidator
  • RegularExpressionValidator
  • CustomValidator
  • ValidationSummary
