Using Summary Validation control with server Custom validation

I setup some standard Required Field Validation controls and one Custom
validation control on an ASP.NET page (within a user control) to validate
text entry. I also setup a Summary Control to post all the messages to a
message box (ShowMessageBox =true). The required field validation error
messages show up in the summary just fine but I can't get the custom
validation message to show up if invalid.

So far I have the summary control showing the required field errors and the
custom validation message shows inline. In order to get that to work, I had
to add code to my button control to not redirect to other page if
page.isvalid = false. Is there anyway to get it to show up on the message
box? Does it have anything to do with the fact that the messagebox is client
side and the custom validation control is doing server side validation?

Thanks,

The alert box shown is a client-side feature that appears prior to posting
back. Your customvalidator most likely does not have any client-side code.
So it cannot contribute to the client-side message box. If you can, write
client-side code for your customvalidator . Otherwise, you will have to live
with this design.

Thanks for your quick response. I am using server side code because it needs
to validate the entry against Active Directory on the server. This can't be
done from client side as far as I know.

I have read numerous articles on validation controls and it is never
mentioned that the message box cannot be used for custom validation controls
that don't use client-side code but I did suspect that was the case since
message box is a client-side feature. I guess I'll have to live with the
design I'm using know.

Thanks again,
Barbara Alderton

Can the CustomValidator be used to simply report unexpected errors, without requiring Client/Server validation? To explain, say you had a simple text box and button that did a Full-text Search of a Catalogue in SQL. Malformed search requests can generate a variety of errors, which I simply want to catch, set the CustomValidator's IsValid method to false and assign the ErrorMessage to the CustomValidator's Message property.

That works fine if I do things that way up to a point, if by chance the validation summary says "Date field required" then I edit the date and input an incorrect date, which I have a JavaScript validation for, that message will come up saying how to enter the date.

I can't get the CustomValidator (CV) ErrorMessage to display in the ValidationSummary. On the same page I have several RequiredField Validators and a Range Validator, that all work just fine, that is, the ErrorMessage text is displayed by the Validation summary control. If I leave the CV Text field blank then the errormmessage does display on the CV itself.

I have a web page with an address entry form and some other things on it. The form has field validators on several of the fields, and a validation summary at the bottom. Because of the size of the form, on a typical screen, you need to scroll to see the bottom of the form, which is where the validation summary is. So when a user presses submit, and gets a validation error, the screen redisplays, but it redisplays from the top with...
