Error Provider Control

P: 53
Hello All,

I am trying to drag and drop an errorprovider control to my Winform application next to the textbox1, But when I drag and drop it sits on the bottom of my form1.cs[Design]. How do I make it to drag next to the textbox1 and also error proivder should display message (eg: The category name should be entered) when the user points to it.How do I do this?? ( I am using VS 2008)

Thank You all....

The error provider control derives from component, which is why it sits at the bottom of the designer, rather than on your form.

To get a message to display next to a control you will have to write some code using the SetError method. There is some good example code here
