ServerValidateEventArgs.IsValid Property

Gets or sets whether the value specified by the Value property passed validation.

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

public bool IsValid { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsValid ()

/** @property */
public void set_IsValid (boolean value)

public function get IsValid () : boolean

public function set IsValid (value : boolean)

Not applicable.

Property Value

true to indicate that the value specified by the Value property passed validation; otherwise, false.

Once your validation routine finishes, use the IsValid property to indicate whether the value specified by the Value property passed validation. This value determines whether the input control associated with the CustomValidator control passed validation.
