Custom control validation

I have created a custom control. It has:
-list of textboxes
-list of dropdownlists.
I want to use a custom validator to perform some validation, but
somehow I can't fo it. The code looks like this:

public class ColumnSelector : Panel
public TextBox[] textBoxes;
public DropDownList[] lists;
CustomValidator validator;
Label label;
Button button;

public ColumnSelector( int numberOfColumns , string[] values)
//initializing textboxes etc.
validator = new CustomValidator ();
validator.Error Message = "You must choose a different value for
each column";
validator.Contr olToValidate = lists[0].ID;
validator.Displ ay = ValidatorDispla y.Dynamic;//?

this.Controls.A dd(label);
for (int i = 0; i < number; i++)
this.Controls.A dd(textBoxes[i]);
for (int i = 0; i < number; i++)
this.Controls.A dd(lists[i]);
this.Controls.A dd(button);
this.Controls.A dd(validator);

protected void validator_Serve rValidate(objec t source,
ServerValidateE ventArgs args)
//validation here
//if ok args.IsValid = true;
//else args.IsValid = false;

protected void button_Click(ob ject sender, EventArgs e)
validator.Valid ate();

This control was created without using GUI so maybe I have forgotten
something? (linking validator to the textbox?). Please let me know
what's wrong with it.

There is also some other problem, that looks like a bug to me, but
maybe it isn't...
I want all of the dropdownlists to have different selectedindex value
initially (unless there's more dropdownlists than values), but somehow
they all have the same value (the value of the last dropdownlist
selected index actually).

ListItem[] items = new ListItem[listOfItems];
for (int i = 0; i < values.Length; i++)
items[i] = new ListItem(values[i]);

for (int i = 0; i < number; i++)
lists[i] = new DropDownList();
lists[i].Items.AddRange (items);
if (i < values.Length) lists[i].SelectedIndex = i;
else lists[i].SelectedIndex = values.Length - 1;

Is it a bug or my error somewhere?
