ValidationSummary.ShowMessageBox Property

 

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the validation summary is displayed in a message box.

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

public bool ShowMessageBox { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the validation summary is to be displayed in a message box; otherwise, false. The default is false.

This property can be used in addition to the ShowSummary property to control where the validation summary is displayed. If this property and EnableClientScript are both set to true, the validation summary is displayed in a message box. If EnableClientScript is set to false, this property has no effect.

System_CAPS_noteNote

If both the ShowMessageBox and ShowSummary properties are set to true, the validation summary is displayed in both a message box and on the Web page.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ShowMessageBox and ShowSummary properties to specify that the validation summary is displayed only in a message box.


<asp:ValidationSummary 
     id="valSum" 
     DisplayMode="BulletList"
     ShowMessageBox="true"
     ShowSummary="false" 
     HeaderText="You must enter a value in the following fields:"
     Font-Names="verdana" 
     Font-Size="12"
     runat="server"/>
