CustomValidator.ClientValidationFunction Property

Gets or sets the name of the custom client-side script function used for validation.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

[ThemeableAttribute(false)] 
public string ClientValidationFunction { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_ClientValidationFunction ()

/** @property */
public void set_ClientValidationFunction (String value)

public function get ClientValidationFunction () : String

public function set ClientValidationFunction (value : String)

Property Value

The name of the custom client script function used for validation. The default value is String.Empty, which indicates that this property is not set.
NoteNote

The function name should not include any parentheses or parameters.

Set this property to the name of the function that performs the client-side validation.

Because the client validation function runs on the target browser, the function must be written using a scripting language supported by the browser, such as JScript or VBScript.

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

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ClientValidationFunction property to specify the name of the function that performs client-side validation. The validation function checks for even numbers.

<html>
<head>

   <script runat="server">

      void ValidateBtn_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs e) 
      { 

         // Display whether the page passed validation.
         if (Page.IsValid) 
         {

            Message.Text = "Page is valid.";

         }

         else 
         {

            Message.Text = "Page is not valid!";

         }

      }

      void ServerValidation(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
      {

         try 
         {

            // Test whether the value entered into the text box is even.
            int i = int.Parse(args.Value);
            args.IsValid = ((i%2) == 0);

         }

         catch(Exception ex)
         {

            args.IsValid = false;

         }

      }
