ITextControl.Text

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.

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