Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of a type that handles request validation tasks. The default is the fully qualified name of the RequestValidator type that ASP.NET uses for validation.

To customize ASP.NET request validation behavior, you can create a class that inherits from the RequestValidator type. In the configuration file for an application, you then set the requestValidationType attribute of the httpRuntime element to the fully qualified string name of the custom type. For more information, see httpRuntime Element (ASP.NET Settings Schema).
