ValidationAttribute Class

ValidationAttribute Class

 

Serves as the base class for all validation attributes.

Namespace:   System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations
Assembly:  System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations (in System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.dll)


[<AbstractClass>]
type ValidationAttribute = 
    class
        inherit Attribute
    end

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodValidationAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the ValidationAttribute class.

System_CAPS_protmethodValidationAttribute(Func<String>)

Initializes a new instance of the ValidationAttribute class by using the function that enables access to validation resources.

System_CAPS_protmethodValidationAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ValidationAttribute class by using the error message to associate with a validation control.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyErrorMessage

Gets or sets an error message to associate with a validation control if validation fails.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyErrorMessageResourceName

Gets or sets the error message resource name to use in order to look up the ErrorMessageResourceType property value if validation fails.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyErrorMessageResourceType

Gets or sets the resource type to use for error-message lookup if validation fails.

System_CAPS_protpropertyErrorMessageString

Gets the localized validation error message.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyRequiresValidationContext

Gets a value that indicates whether the attribute requires validation context.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodFormatErrorMessage(String)

Applies formatting to an error message, based on the data field where the error occurred.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetValidationResult(Object, ValidationContext)

Checks whether the specified value is valid with respect to the current validation attribute.

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsValid(Object)

Determines whether the specified value of the object is valid.

System_CAPS_protmethodIsValid(Object, ValidationContext)

Validates the specified value with respect to the current validation attribute.

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodValidate(Object, String)

Validates the specified object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodValidate(Object, ValidationContext)

Validates the specified object.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

Exception Condition
ValidationException

The ErrorMessageResourceType and ErrorMessageResourceName properties for localized error message are set at the same time that the non-localized ErrorMessage property error message is set.

This class enforces validation, based on the metadata that is associated with the data table. You can override this class to create custom validation attributes.
