Page.GetValidators Method

Returns a collection of control validators for a specified validation group.

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

public ValidatorCollection GetValidators(
	string validationGroup
)

Parameters

validationGroup
Type: System.String
The validation group to return, or null to return the default validation group.

Return Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ValidatorCollection
A ValidatorCollection that contains the control validators for the specified validation group.

The GetValidators method returns all the validation objects associated with a specific validation group. You can return the default validation group (all validation controls associated with controls without the ValidationGroup property set) by setting the validationGroup parameter to null.

To validate the members of the validation group, you can enumerate over the collection and call the Validate method of each validator returned.

The following code example uses the GetValidators method to return the default validation group.


// Get 'Validators' of the page to myCollection.
ValidatorCollection myCollection = Page.GetValidators(null);

// Get the Enumerator.
IEnumerator myEnumerator = myCollection.GetEnumerator();
// Print the values in the ValidatorCollection.
string myStr = " ";
while ( myEnumerator.MoveNext() )
{
    myStr += myEnumerator.Current.ToString();
    myStr += " ";
}
messageLabel.Text = myStr;
