Property Value

Type: System.String
The text displayed in the validation control when validation fails. The default is an empty string (""), which indicates that this property is not set.

Implements

ITextControl.Text

Use the Text property to specify the text to display in a validation control when validation fails. You can also display a summary of all controls that fail validation in the page by using a ValidationSummary control. To specify the text to display in a ValidationSummary control, use the ErrorMessage property.

NoteNote

If you set the ErrorMessage property without setting the Text property, the value of the ErrorMessage property is also displayed in the validation control.
