I have this in my code for the email text box

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator id="valRegEx" runat="server"
    ControlToValidate="email"
    ValidationExpression=".*@.*\..*"
    ErrorMessage="Your entry is not a valid e-mail address."
    display="dynamic">*
</asp:RegularExpressionValidator>


the code does work, but once you click submit it does not stop the page and ignores it anyway, so it is not use telling me then letting me do it anyway!

how to I get it do make sure the user has to enter the correct email address before they can do anything else??

thanks in advance

How do you know that the RegularExpressionValidator works? Does the submit button have CausesValidation property set to true?

I always use this validation expression: "http://([\w-]+\.)+[\w-]+(/[\w- ./?%&=]*)?" from regular expression editor VS.NET and never have any problem with email validation.

i think it works becuase i have other validators on something else that checks for a blank boxes. but on the email one is just the code above, it seems to validate it when the other box has nothing in. but once if i fill in the other box an click submit it just sends it.

i will post my code below so you can see what i mean.

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator
      id="valRegEx"
      runat="server"
      ErrorMessage="Your entry is not a valid e-mail address."
      Display="Dynamic"
      ControlToValidate="TextBox1"
      ValidationExpression="(0\d{1,4}-|\(0\d{1,4}\) ?)?\d{1,4}-\d{4}" />
