I built a simple asp.net form. when I added the code to make the page email the form results, the page stopped returning error messages and does not validate. the form will submit blank, or any way the end user chooses. Can some one please help me with this code. This is important.
Here is the code:

<script runat="server">
      protected void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e) {
            if(!Page.IsPostBack)
                  Message.Text = "";
      }


      protected void Send_Email(Object Sender, EventArgs e) {
            MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();

                  mail.To = "todd@escrowmall.com";
                  mail.From = "Loans@larrywloans.com";

                  mail.BodyFormat = MailFormat.Html;

                  mail.Subject = "Online Application";
//mail.Body = Request.Form["body"];


string strBody = "<html><body><b>Name:</b> " + Request.Form["txtApplicantName"] + "<br><br><b>Address:</b> " + Request.Form["txtAddress"] + "<br><br><b>City:</b> " + Request.Form["txtCity"] + "<br><br><b>State:</b> " + Request.Form["txtState"] + "<br><br><b>Zip:</b> " + Request.Form["txtZipCode"] + "<br><br><b>Email:</b> " + Request.Form["txtEmail"] + "<br><br><b>Phone:</b> " + Request.Form["txtPhone"] + "<br><br><b>Fax:</b> " + Request.Form["txtFax"] + "<br><br><b>Income:</b> $" + Request.Form["txtIncome"] + "<br> <font color=\"red\"></font></body></html>";
mail.Body = strBody;




            SmtpMail.Send(mail);
            Response.Flush();

            Message.Text = "<center>Application Sent Successfully...<br><br>" +
                        "<a href=\"todd.aspx\">Go Back</a></center><Br><Br>";
      }
</script>

I can post all of the html if you would like. Its kind of a long page so I just cut out the C# script. Let me know if thats what you want to see. I'll post the validation:


<!-- Start Web Form -->      
      <asp:label id="Message" runat="server" />

<% if(!Page.IsPostBack) { %>
<table align="center" width="500" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="1" border="0">      
      <form runat="server" name="form1" method="post" action="">
            <tr>
                  <td colspan="3"><span class="bold">Application Request&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Required Fields</span> <font color="red">*</font></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>

If you want server side validation, you should call this.IsValid in the page which will then call all the validation methods of all your Valiadators. The call to IsValid should be before you start preparing the data for sending

rerun scripts for validation...
go to command line:

C: --> cd windows (or winnt) --> cd microsoft.net --> cd framework --> cd v1.1.4322(your version) --> aspnet_regiis -c

This should fix the validation...happens sometimes...

glsac, the form validates perfect locally. when viewing the form on the server, it will not return error messages when filled out incorrect. It does pass the email!

Hello,

Please make sure that you have aspnet_client directory in the root of your web application. It is required with every validation. I will give you some more information in an hour, sorry in hurry and got to go.

I have tested the code that you have pasted after some modification. It seems to be working. Can you tell in more detail about the problem.

Thanks, Nauman

ok. This time I tested the script by adding Page.Validate in the  event. First I tested by adding it and then I tested by removing the statement and the validation failed this time. Replace your Send_Email code with this:

protected void Send_Email(Object Sender, EventArgs e) {
Page.Validate();
if (Page.IsValid)
{
  //Code to send e-mail
}

I hope this will help.
