Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms::AutoValidate

An AutoValidate enumerated value that indicates whether contained controls are implicitly validated on focus change. The default is Inherit.

Exception Condition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

A AutoValidate value that is not valid was used to set this property.

The default value for AutoValidate will differ for each control. For more details on implicit validation, see User Input Validation in Windows Forms.

Setting this property to a new value will raise the AutoValidateChanged event.

The following code example turns off implicit validation for a form and all of its contained controls, and instead manually performs validation of all of the form's children when a mouse button is clicked.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
