I have a userControl as shown below. I am using the same usercontrol twice in one of my ASPX pages. How do I add requiredFieldValidator or CustomValidator in my ASPX page where I am using the usercontrol instead of adding in the usercontrol itself.

When I try to add it in my aspx page I am getting this error

Control 'calStart' referenced by the ControlToValidate property of 'cvCalendar' cannot be validated.


<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Calendar.ascx.cs" Inherits="z360.Forms.modules.Utilities.zeewiseCalendar" %>

<table cellpadding=2 cellspacing=2>
<tr>
    <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtCalendar" Width="100" runat=server></asp:TextBox></td>
    <td><a id="hypCalendar" runat=server><img src="../../images/cal.gif" width="16" height="16" border="0" alt="Click Here to Pick up the Date"></a><asp:Label ID="Label1" runat=server Text="*" ForeColor=red Visible=false ></asp:Label></td>    
</tr>

</table>


And when I register and user Control twice in my ASPX page as shown below:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="zw" TagName="Calendar" Src=”Calendar.ascx" %>

Start Date/Time<zw:Calendar ID="calStart" runat=server />
Start Date/Time<zw:Calendar ID="calEnd" runat=server />

And when I add a customFieldvalidator as shown below it is throwing out errors:
<asp:CustomValidator ID="cvCalendar" ControlToValidate="calStart" runat=server OnServerValidate="calendarValidate"></asp:CustomValidator>

havent tried/tested but..

when u put a user control on the page, all of your the controls of the userControl will be renamed like this:

original name:

TextBox1

suppose ur userControl Id at the main page is UserControl1

so ur TextBox1 will be then

UserControl1_TextBox1

so i suppose u gotta make the control to validade to be like that [UserControlID]_[ControlIdToValidade]

not sure tho =/

hi,
In order to be referenced by a validation control, a control must have a validation property. All controls that can be validated have a ValidationPropertyAttribute, which indicates which property should be read for the purposes of validation. If you write your own control, you can make it take part in validation by providing one of these attributes to specify which property to use.

can you provide detailed error message. Also can you try removing one of u r custom control and then see if it throws error. My point is i dont think it metters if you have 2 same control on the page.
