ControllerBase.ValidateRequest Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether request validation is enabled for this request.

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

public bool ValidateRequest { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if request validation is enabled for this request; otherwise, false. The default is true.

In ASP.NET 4, setting the ValidateRequest to false has no effect because validation takes place before the MVC pipeline receives the request. Therefore, in ASP.NET 4 you must set the RequestValidationMode property to a version lower than 4.0. You can configure the validation mode in the Web.config file by using the RequestValidationMode attribute of the httpRuntime element, as shown in the following example:

   <httpRuntime  requestValidationMode="2.0" />
