CustomValidator in Datagrid ItemTemplate
Posted on 2004-10-21
I have a datagrid that has two item templates,
1.) with a drop down list
2.) with a textbox and CustomValidator
On the postback I am iterating through the datagrid and ensuring that the text box is filled for certian selections in the drop down list.
When I find one that is in error I set the custom validator as such.
validTest.ErrorMessage = "testing summary validator";
validTest.IsValid = false;
Unfortunately within the datagrid the validator does not appear "*" and the summary validator does not appear with the text.
If I use a CustomValidator in the same fashion and same section of code that resides outside of the datagrid, the validator works as I expected.
Anyone have any thoughts on this.
Thanks for the read.
