Property Value

true to set focus on the control specified by ControlToValidate when validation fails; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Use the SetFocusOnError property to specify whether focus is automatically set to the control specified by the ControlToValidate property when this validation control fails. This allows the user to quickly update the appropriate control.

If multiple validation controls fail and this property is set to true, the control specified in the ControlToValidate property for the first validation control receives focus.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and Introduction to ASP.NET Themes.
