SPField.GetValidatedString Method

Windows SharePoint Services 3

Used for data serialization logic and for field validation logic that is specific to a custom field type to convert the field value object into a validated, serialized string.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

public virtual string GetValidatedString(
	Object value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Object
An object that represents the value object to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.String
A string that serializes the value object.

In a custom type-specific class, override the GetValidatedString method to define the following kinds of logic:

  • Data-validation, for example, to throw an exception in server-side code if the field is required.

  • Pre-update data processing, for example, to filter out bad data but not fail validation.

  • Serialization, for example, to convert a field value object into string format.
