submit buttons no longer working after framework sp1

P: n/a
Hello,

I just installed sp2 for XP (on my development server), and tested my
application: worked fine. Then installed sp1 for the 1.1 framework (as
urged by Windows Update) and now this: the submit buttons in my aspx
pages no longer work. It's as if the javascript behind the buttons
isn't being called; at least, no server call is made. Is this familiar
to anybody?

Turns out the required field validators were failing, no longer
functional, for reasons I could not determine. Even when I take out the
RFValidator and reinsert it, the same thing happens, the button won't
submit (though the RFValidator Text does not appear). It's sad tto find
things out like this.

I should have known, since sp1 for the framework is a security update....

the .js file used by the validators was not readable by the ASPNET user.
I granted read permission on its folder to ASPNET and now the
validators work.

I faced the same problem and found out that SP 1 is'n't backward
compatible for customvalidators. SP 1 defaults the attribute
enableclientscript for a customvalidator to TRUE. If you use server side
validators, you must use enableclientscript="false". Without this attribute
postbacks won't be send to your app. IE stops parsing JS when searching for a
undefined client-side javascript function.

Hope this helps.
