This RangeValidator control validates when TextBox1 has integer value range from 18 to 100

<asp:RangeValidator id="RangeValidator1" runat="server" ErrorMessage="RangeValidator" Display="Dynamic"
      ControlToValidate="TextBox1" Type="Integer" MinimumValue="18" MaximumValue="100"></asp:RangeValidator>

did it this way

<asp:CustomValidator ClientValidationFunction='"dob" > DateTime.Now.AddYears(-18)' ControlToValidate="dob" Display="Dynamic" EnableClientScript="true" ErrorMessage="you must be over 18" ID="dobValidator" runat="server" />


seems to work fine.

The best thing is to use a few validators for this.

1. A RequiredValidator.  This ensure the user enters something in the field.

2. A CompareValidator, with the following properties set:
- Operator = DataTypeCheck
- ControlToCompare is empty (no value)
- Type = Date
This ensures the user enters a valid date to begin with

3. Another CompareValidator (I'll call it here "AgeCompareValidator", with the following properties set:
- Operator = LessThanEqual
- Type = Date
On the server-side, in Page_Load, add the following lines:

DateTime MaxBirthDate = new DateTime();
// set the proper date of MaxBirthDate.  The proper date is today - 18 years.
AgeCompareValidator.ValueToCompare = MaxBirthDate.ToString();

i can not get the script to work i can not convert it.

Exception Details: System.Web.HttpException: The value '01/01/0001 00:00:00' of the ValueToCompare property of 'AgeCompareValidator' cannot be converted to type 'Date'.

        iMonths = DateDiff(DateInterval.Month, Birthdate, AsOf)

        dYears = iMonths / 12

        iYears = Math.Floor(dYears)

        If iBirthMonth = iAsOFMonth Then
            If lAsOf < lDayOfBirth Then
                iYears = iYears - 1
            End If
        End If
