ASP.NET FREE DATE PICKER CONTROL PROBLEM - "ControlToValidate" property error

Hi

I downloaded this free asp.net date picker control from http://www.eclipsewebsolutions.com.au/Products/DatePickerControl/tabid/56/Default.aspx

Takes 2 mins to use, however when I use their example with a required field validator I get the following error...

"....Control 'DatePicker1' referenced by the ControlToValidate property of 'RequiredFieldValidator1' cannot be validated....."

Could somebody download the control and see if they get the same error?

This will guaratneed happen looking at their source code.

They have two inputs generated and both withing a naming container.  this means that the id of the input is not the id you assign to the id of the control.

Instead the id of the input looks like:
id="dnn_ctr373_XSSmartModule_ctl00_DatePicker1_txtDate"

You could look in your code to see the actual id and send that into the required field validator to get it to work...

Otherwise I don't think this is the best written control for that situation...

We don't use one that is a pre-wrapped .NET control.  We wrote our own...

Just a javascript date picker added to an asp:textbox works great - then you can use the required field validators, range validaators, type validators, etc all tied to the asp:textbox

Here is one:
