can anyone help with this problem, i'm trying to display an error message in a custom validator if a file size is larger than 200kbs, but i cannot get the validation to fire, i've tried changing the args,Isvalid to true or false but no luck.


<asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" TabIndex="20" runat="server" />
                   <asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1"
                                        ErrorMessage="File must be less than 200kb's"

 protected void CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
            if (FileUpload1.HasFile)
                System.IO.FileStream fstre = new System.IO.FileStream(FileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open, System.IO.FileAccess.Read);
                if (fstre.Length > 1024 * 1)//Just checking to see if file is larger than 1kb
                    args.IsValid = false;
                    CustomValidator1.Text = "File must be less than 200kb's";
                    CustomValidator1.Visible = true;
                    args.IsValid = true;
