ValidationSummary.ShowSummary Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the validation summary is displayed inline.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public bool ShowSummary { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_ShowSummary ()

/** @property */
public void set_ShowSummary (boolean value)

public function get ShowSummary () : boolean

public function set ShowSummary (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the validation summary is displayed inline; otherwise, false. The default is true.

This property can be used in addition to the ShowMessageBox property to control where the validation summary is displayed. If this property is set to true, the validation summary is displayed on the Web page.

NoteNote

If both the ShowMessageBox and ShowSummary properties are set to true, the validation summary is displayed in both a message box and on the Web page.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ShowMessageBox and ShowSummary properties to specify that the validation summary is displayed in both a message box and on the Web page.
