Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("validateRequest", DefaultValue = true)]
public bool ValidateRequest { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if ASP.NET examines input from the browser for dangerous values; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Request validation is performed by comparing all input data to a list of potentially dangerous values. If a match occurs, ASP.NET raises an HttpRequestValidationException.

The following code example shows how to use the ValidateRequest property.

// Get the current ValidateRequest property value.
Console.WriteLine(
    "Current ValidateRequest value: '{0}'",
    pagesSection.ValidateRequest);

// Set the ValidateRequest property to true.
pagesSection.ValidateRequest = true;
