ASP .net Escape page validation
Posted on 2004-10-13
I have a renew password web form. As the name says, it renews user password.
In which, there are web contorls such as new password textbox and confirm password textbox that are validated by validation controls. For example, if the password textboxes are empty, it simply invalid the page.
The page also has a hyperlink button "Renew Later", for user to have an option to renew the account at a later time. Once user click on the hyperlink button, it redirect user to some other page.
The problem with this set up is if the user just click on the hyperlink button "Renew Later" without entering password, it triggers the page validation control. Is there a simple way to escape the validation?
