CustomValidator.ControlPropertiesValid Method ()


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Checks the properties of the control for valid values.

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

Protected Overrides Function ControlPropertiesValid As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the control properties are valid; otherwise, false.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the ControlPropertiesValid method in a custom server control so that it always returns the value of the visible property, as long as the ControlToValidate property of the CustomValidator control is on the page and contains validation properties.
