Possible to put ValidationsGroup's on GridView AND FormView?

Hello - I worked up a page, with one <form> and one DataSource, that has a GridView to do update's and delete's, and then a FormView below that to do insert's. Everything was working as expected.

Then I added validation controls to each control on the FormView that needed one, and a ValidationSummary control to group them together. Still working fine.

Then I went back and added a ValidationGroup attribute to each validation control, and the LinkButton that triggers the insert. Now when I click that LinkButton, nothing happens at all.

I tried adding the same ValidationGroup attribute to the data controls also; still no help

I checked the LinkButton; CausesValidation is set to True

I took all the ValidationGroup attributes back out, and it works fine again.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Mark

I found the problem - I had not tagged the ValidationSummary control with the ValidationGroup. When I went back and fixed that, it worked fine.

FWIW, this page now has separate sets of validation controls, a ValidationSummary, and a ValidationGroup for both the GridView and FormView, and it's working fine.
