Validate Changed Data Before Submitting

Hello,

I've read somewhere that you can validate form data
before actually submitting it, similar to what validation
controls would do. For example, I have a form that has 2
textboxes. I populate the 2 textboxes with values from
the database. I also have an update button that will
update the values. If I have not made any change to the
data in the textboxes, then I do not want to submit the
data when the update button is clicked. I want to be able
to display a message that says data has not changed. Is
there a way to do this using viewstate or caching the
data.

Thanks,

Viewstate is encrypted data that is viewable only on the server. So, you
have two options:

1. Store the current values in either viewstate or a session variable, then
do a comparison on postback to determine if they have changed prior to
updating the database.
2. Run a javascript on the client on the page load event that stores the
current value of these text boxes. Then, have an <input type="button"
onClick="review AndSubmit()"> that calls the reviewAndSubmit function
(JavaScript) which compares the current values to the original values, and
if they are different submit, otherwise redirect.

How do i check if a sql-string has corect syntax. With select-statements you can just use a Datareader, since no data is changed in the database, but i'm working with other statements as well, and need to just verify that the syntax of the string is correct, and determine if it is a select, update, insert or delete statement. I've looked but can't seem to find a class that does this.

I need to validate a form to ensure that all of the fields add up correctly. I can't do this while the user is entering data since validation needs to be done after the entry is completed. What's the "best" way to validate prior to submitting? I could add an onsubmit attribute to the form which executes the validation in Javascript. That way the response doesn't need to be sent before validation takes place. Is this pretty much the way...
