Property Value

Type: System.Boolean


An attempt was made to set this property.

ASP.NET controls create client-side scripts to raise postback events on the server. It is possible for a malicious user to use the postback script to send arbitrary post events to server controls. For this reason, ASP.NET version 2.0 controls validate the event data to ensure that the event was raised by client-side code rendered by the control.

Event validation is not supported in mobile pages.
