ContainerControl.Validate Method ()

Verifies the value of the control losing focus by causing the Validating and Validated events to occur, in that order.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public bool Validate ()
public boolean Validate ()
public function Validate () : boolean

Return Value

true if validation is successful; otherwise, false.

The Validate method validates the last child control that is not validated and its ancestors up through, but not including, the current container control. This overloaded version always performs validation, regardless of the value of the AutoValidate property of the control's parent. Therefore use it to unconditionally force validation.
