Trouble with validation controls

Hi everyone.
I have created a page where the user can add elements to a checkboxlist with typing some text in a textbox and push the 'add' button

                                                <asp:TextBox id="txtKartlegging" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                                <asp:Button class="butt2" id="cmdLeggTil" onclick="cmdLeggTil_Click" runat="server" text="Legg Til"></asp:Button>
                                                <asp:RequiredFieldValidator id="valKartlegging" runat="server" Display="dynamic" ErrorMessage="* Tom Verdi" ControlToValidate="txtKartlegging">* Tom verdi
                                                </asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

Sub cmdLeggTil_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
if valKartlegging.isValid() then
.......adds the element to the checkboxlist here
end if
End Sub

This works perfect!
But this page is a part of multiple pages in a wizard, and the problem occurs when the user tries to click the 'Next' button which redirects the user to the next page. This button has no validation at all, but still I don't get redirected until the validation on the textbox is valid. Why is it so? How can I just get redirected to the next page without having the textbox validation ok?

the redirecting code looks like this:

<asp:Button class="ButtonOrangeStandard" id="ApplyAndNext" onclick="ApplyAndNext_Click" runat="server" Text="Neste"></asp:Button>

vb:

Sub ApplyAndNext_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    Response.Redirect("WebForm8.aspx")
End Sub

Hi,
you have to add the CauseValidation=False to the ApplyAndNext

Well, I push the ApplyAndNext button and nothing happens...
If i write something in the textbox and pushes the ApplyAndNext button it works!

This is weird because the only validation check i have in the code is in the cmdLeggtil_Click method which adds an element to the checkboxlist:

Sub cmdLeggTil_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
if valKartlegging.isValid() then
.......adds the element to the checkboxlist here
end if
End Sub

Here is my <page> tag:

<%@ Page Explicit="True" Language="VB" Debug="True" AspCompat="True" %>
<%@ import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ import Namespace="System.Data.OleDb" %>

i think it is related with the type of validation
by default the EnableCLientScript is set to through and the validation is performed on the client every time
try to set it to false and check if there is some change
