button attributes disable validation

I am trying to use both validation controls and to add submit button
attributes, but when I add the button attributes, the javascript fpr the
validation controls is no longer created for the page. How can I use both?

Thank you,

Hi Tim,

If I understand you correctly, you are trying to add javascript to the
submit button and it breaks client-side validation. If that's the case, see
this article: http://aspalliance.com/699 in the topic "Messagebox es and
Validation". While it shows how to add a confirm prompt, you can use the
technique shown to add any javascript to a button.

Peter,

Thank you for this information. It has shown me how to invoke the
validation objects when the submit button is pressed as part of the server
side event handler - and it appears that the validation should be added to
server-side handling especially for browsers that cannot handle client-side
validation.

I would still be interested in knowing how to run the client-side validation
in conjunction with the confirm feature that I added to my submit button to
avoid a postback.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Peter,

I also found out that one can selectively enable and disable client side
validation merely by setting the enable flag of the validation control to
true or false. I was able to take advantage of that in my code to simplify
validation for all my validation controls by creating the two following
methods:

// Returns true if validation succeeds for the given validation control, or,

// if the control is not enabled (in which case no validation should occur)

private bool IsValidControl( BaseValidator control)

{

if (!control.Enabl ed)

{

return true;

}

control.Validat e();

return (control.IsVali d);

}

private bool IsValidForm()

{

bool valid = true;

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValUserID);

valid &= IsValidControl( RegexUserID);

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValFirstName );

valid &= IsValidControl( RegexFirstName) ;

valid &= IsValidControl( RegexMiddleInit ial);

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValLastName) ;

valid &= IsValidControl( RegexLastName);

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValEmail);

valid &= IsValidControl( RegexEmail);

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValPhone);

valid &= IsValidControl( RegexPhone);

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValNotes);

valid &= IsValidControl( ReqValReject);

return valid;

}

Finally, I invoked the IsValidForm() method in my submit button onclick
handler as follows:

if (!IsValidForm() )

{

return;

}

I'm confused by this. I pointed you to a portion of my article that
specifically handles client-side confirm that either permits or blocks
submitting the page.

FYI: This is easier in my Professional Validation And More. I give you
properties to create confirm messages and run the confirm either before or
after page validation runs on the client side. I also give you a hook to add
any other javascript you want into the page validation process so you can
stop the page from submitting for your own reasons.

When we use btnSubmit.Attributes = "javascript: this.disabled=true;" to make the button disabled and prevent users from clicking it again while form data still posting, there is no longer postback. I.e. the button does go disabled, but the form does not invoke submit() method. Of course, it does work fine without this property. Clues?
