CustomValidator client-side validation

I currently have the following code on an aspx page:

function validOtherAssets(source, arguments)
          if (document.getElementById('txtOtherAssets').value > 0 && document.getElementById('txtOtherDesc').value == '')
               arguments.IsValid = false;
               arguments.IsValid = true;

<asp:CustomValidator Runat=server ID="cuvOtherDesc" ClientValidationFunction="validOtherAssets();" ErrorMessage="--" Display=None></asp:CustomValidator>

However, I am getting an error on the "arguments" variable.  It claims to be undefined.  My understanding is that "source" and "arguments" are expected variables with a custom validator.

Any thoughts?

I believe the problem is the "();" in ClientValidationFunction="validOtherAssets();"

This should read ClientValidationFunction="validOtherAssets"
