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}'", _

' Set the ValidateRequest property to true.
pagesSection.ValidateRequest = True
