CustomValidator.ClientValidationFunction Property

Gets or sets the name of the custom client-side script function used for validation.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property ClientValidationFunction As String
[C#]
public string ClientValidationFunction {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property String* get_ClientValidationFunction();
public: __property void set_ClientValidationFunction(String*);
[JScript]
public function get ClientValidationFunction() : String;
public function set ClientValidationFunction(String);

Property Value

The name of the custom client script function used for validation. The default value is String.Empty, which indicates that this property is not set.

Note   The function name should not include any parentheses or parameters.

Remarks

Set this property to the name of the function that performs the client-side validation.

Because the client validation function runs on the target browser, the function must be written using a scripting language supported by the browser, such as JScript or VBScript.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example demonstrates how to use the ClientValidationFunction property to specify the name of the function that performs client-side validation. The validation function checks for even numbers.
