ValidationCompareOperator Enumeration

Specifies the validation comparison operators used by the CompareValidator control.

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

public enum ValidationCompareOperator

Member nameDescription
DataTypeCheckA comparison for data type only.
EqualA comparison for equality.
GreaterThanA comparison for greater than.
GreaterThanEqualA comparison for greater than or equal to.
LessThanA comparison for less than.
LessThanEqualA comparison for less than or equal to.
NotEqualA comparison for inequality.

The ValidationCompareOperator enumeration represents the comparison operations that can be performed by the CompareValidator control.

NoteNote

Unlike the other operators, DataTypeCheck is a unary operation. Only the data type of the input control being validated is checked. If the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare properties are set when this operation is used, those values are not checked.

Security noteSecurity Note

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
