How to programatically append to existing ValidationSummary (VB solution)
Hi everyone - not sure how to accomplish this - I hope someone can help (VB please).
I have a database insert (via a DetailsView) which uses the standard ASP.NET 2 validation controls, i.e.
asp:RequiredFieldValidator to pinpoint what to validate (and specify the text for an associated error), and
asp:ValidationSummary to collate and display all the error message from the RequiredFieldValidators
This worked fine - but now I have a dynamically generated checkboxlist for which I need to check at least one field is selected (and of course .NET validation doesn't cater for checkboxlists).
I'm actually already calculating how many of the checkboxes have been ticked, so identifying a zero result isn't the problem - what I'd like to do (and don't have a clue how) is incorporate an error message resulting from such a zero result in the existing 'ValidationSummary' (i.e. so it appears at the same time, as part of the same list).
Thanks for looking.
