ValidationSummary.ShowSummary Property

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

[Visual Basic]
Public Property ShowSummary As Boolean
[C#]
public bool ShowSummary {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property bool get_ShowSummary();
public: __property void set_ShowSummary(bool);
[JScript]
public function get ShowSummary() : Boolean;
public function set ShowSummary(Boolean);

Property Value

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

Remarks

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.

Note   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.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following 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.
