BaseValidator.Text Property

Gets or sets the text displayed in the validation control when validation fails.

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

public override string Text { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_Text ()

/** @property */
public void set_Text (String value)

public override function get Text () : String

public override function set Text (value : String)

Property Value

The text displayed in the validation control when validation fails. The default is an empty string (""), which indicates that this property is not set.

Use the Text property to specify the text to display in a validation control when validation fails. You can also display a summary of all controls that fail validation in the page by using a ValidationSummary control. To specify the text to display in a ValidationSummary control, use the ErrorMessage property.

NoteNote

If you set the ErrorMessage property without setting the Text property, the value of the ErrorMessage property is also displayed in the validation control.
