Required Field Validator Does Not Block Postback

Wow, this is a really embarassing thing to have to ask about...

I have an asp.net page with a multiview control in it. We want to enter
person info in a semi - wizard style and I wanted to use required field
validators for, well required fields. On the first view, the person
enters first name, last name and a couple other things. the RFV works
great on first and last name and we move on to the next view -
Addresses. I want to be able to enter multiple addresses so I have an
update button that stores each address entered into a private variable
and clears the form for the next address (yes, it is set to
CauseValidation ). The problem is the update button IS NOT causing
client side validation? WTF???

I thought this may be due to the views but I created a quick test
mockup with a MultiView, two views each with a button, a text field and
a RFV. It works every time.
Field and Validator:
<th align="left" nowrap="nowrap" >
Address One:
<td width="90%" align="left">
<asp:TextBox ID="txtAddressL ineOne" runat="server"
MaxLength="100" Width="250px"></asp:TextBox>&nb sp;
<asp:RequiredFi eldValidator id="rfvAddressL ineOne"
runat="server" ErrorMessage="A ddress 1 is a
Required Field" ControlToValida te="txtAddressL ineOne"
CssClass="Error Message"
EnableClientScr ipt="true">
</asp:RequiredFie ldValidator>


<asp:Button ID="btnUpdate" runat="server" Text="Update"
OnClick="btnUpd ate_Click" CausesValidatio n="true"/>

Any ideas?

I have an interesting problem when I run the following code in Netscape (7.02) vs. IE. This page works great in IE and all my controls bring up the validation summary dialog box if the required field is not filled out. However in Netscape NONE of the required field validations occurs at all in Netscape. The form is posting correctly because I can walk through the post back process. Any ideas why this is happening or how to fix it?

Hi, Has anybody run into problems with Page.IsValid? My errors show up when the fields aren't filled correctly, but my processing continues even if the page is invalid. I leave name and description blank and I do get the error messages. But the code still continues to run the addfolder method from my class. Is there something wrong with this?

I have a page with a couple of Required Field Validators. However, I have a button which displays a popup with some information. I want this button to be able to work without having the Required Field Validators fire. I can't figure out how to do that. Is there a better way of validating the info rather than using field validators? Any help is appreciated? Thanks, Brent

Hi, I am having a problem with displaying a * to a required field. There seems to be a problem with this and the static value does not appear unless you submit the page. I am trying to display the static text as soon as the page is loaded in the browser. Does anyone know if there is a bug with the aps.net validator controls? Or is this not possible.

Hi, I have an ASP.Net web page . The page was working fine until I added a required field field validator. My page has a link button which takes the user to another page, a submit button which takes the values of the text boxes & puts them into an SQL database. After adding the required field validator, when I click any button, (be it submit button ot link button or any other button), it shows the required field validator's TEXT i.e...

Hi, Could someone give me a quick review of how to use the required field Validator? I'm completely at a loss, and MSDN does not help one bit. =/ Basically all I want done is to make sure that the user enters some text into a field called "txbName" and when they click on the submit button, if they have not entered anything into the field, a Required Field Validator will say "Invalid Name". Thanks,

Can you use a Required Validator on a CheckBoxList? You can on a RadioButtonList. But when I try on my CheckBoxList I get the error: Control 'RFPServiceTypes' referenced by the ControlToValidate property of 'ServiceTypesCheck' cannot be validated <asp:CheckBoxList id="RFPServiceTypes" CellPadding="0" CellSpacing="0"

For some reason these fields are not being validated before the postback. Here the HTML page. Am I missing something from the validator controls that needs to be set? <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="padding-top:0; padding-bottom:0; padding-left:0; padding-right:0;" width="800"> <tr style=" background-color : #5D7B9D;"> <td colspan="2"> <asp:Label ID="Label5" runat="server"

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
