public virtual bool CausesValidation { get; set; }
<asp:HtmlAnchor CausesValidation="True|False" />

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if validation is performed when the HtmlAnchor is clicked; otherwise, false. The default is true.

By default, page validation is performed when an HtmlAnchor control is clicked. Page validation determines whether controls that are associated with a validation control on the page all pass the validation rules that are specified by the validation control.

You can specify or determine whether validation is performed on both the client and the server when an HtmlAnchor control is clicked by using the CausesValidation property. To prevent validation from being performed, set the CausesValidation property to false.
