Multiple ValidationSummary controls.

P: n/a
If a page has multiple ValidationSummary controls, how does it distinguish
which ValidationControls are associated with which ValidationSummary
controls?

The reason I am asking this is that I want to display a Message Box for the
validation message on my Validation controls. My validation control is
embedded within a custom server control. If my custom server control adds a
ValidationSummary control, I am afraid that it may conflict with an existing
ValidationSummary control if one exists on the page where the custom server
control is placed.

By design, the ValidationSummary control collects ALL validator error
messages on the page.

My replacement to the ASP.NET validators, Professional Validation And More
(http://www.peterblum.com/vam/home.aspx), provides a technique called
Validation Groups. It lets you assign a group name to the submit button and
the validators it fires. You can have multiple ValidationSummary controls on
the page, each with its own Validation Group.

If you are only trying to avoid having two validationsummaries on the page,
you can have your UserControl check the parent control for the
ValidationSummary and then set its own to Visible=false.
