I am using an error provider to validate a text box, my problem is the event is not being raised when I go to another field, why ?

Here is my code:

private void txtUserId_Validating(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e )
{
     string error = null;
     MessageBox.Show("What !");
     if ( this.txtUserId.Text.Length == 0 )
    {
        error = "The userid is a mandatory field, please enter a userid.";
       e.Cancel = true;
    }

   this.errorProvider1.SetError((Control) sender,error);
}
