ServerValidateEventArgs Class

Provides data for the ServerValidate event of the CustomValidator control. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public ref class ServerValidateEventArgs : public EventArgs
public class ServerValidateEventArgs extends EventArgs
public class ServerValidateEventArgs extends EventArgs
Not applicable.

A ServerValidateEventArgs is passed to the ServerValidate event handler to provide event data to the handler. The ServerValidate event is raised when validation is performed on the server. This allows you to perform a custom server-side validation routine on the value of an input control (with a CustomValidator control associated with it) in the event handler.

The value to validate is determined by using the Value property. Once your code has determined whether the value is valid, store the results of the validation in the IsValid property.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of ServerValidateEventArgs, see the ServerValidateEventArgs constructor.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following example demonstrates how to use a ServerValidateEventArgs to pass event data to a custom event handler for the ServerValidate event. Notice that the Value property of the ServerValidateEventArgs is used to determine the value to validate, while the IsValid property is used to store the results of the validation.
