I am trying to validate listbox by CustomValidator control using client script but the clien script function is not fired!
Here is my code, what I am doin wrong?

<asp:listbox id="Departments" runat="server" Width="160px" SelectionMode="Multiple"></asp:listbox>
<asp:CustomValidator id="Departmentsvld" runat="server" ControlToValidate="Departments"  ClientValidationFunction="HasDepartment" Text="*" />

<script>                  
function HasDepartment(source, arguments)
      {
            alert("Fired");
            for(var i=0; i < document.getElementById('Departments').length; i++)
            {
                  if(document.getElementById("Departments")[i].selected)
                  {
                        arguments.IsValid = true;
                        return;
                        //this is selected
                  }
            }
            arguments.IsValid = false;
      }
</script>

There is probably some Javascript syntax error somewhere else in your page that keeps HasDepartment from being "seen".

Just using a mockup codefile and your code in a fresh page (both below), I get the "Fired" alert everytime I click in the selection box.

So whatever your problem is, it is NOT in the code which you posted!


code behind
------------------------------------
Partial Class eelb
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page


    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            Departments.Items.Add(New ListItem("Bakery", "20"))
            Departments.Items.Add(New ListItem("Grocery", "30"))
            Departments.Items.Add(New ListItem("Pharmacy", "40"))
            Departments.Items.Add(New ListItem("Produce", "50"))
            Departments.Items.Add(New ListItem("Meat", "60"))
            Departments.Items.Add(New ListItem("Fish", "70"))

        End If
    End Sub
End Class
---------------------------
