RequiredFieldValidator doesn't work inside an UpdatePanel

Inside an UpdatePanel I have a DropDownList with a RequiredFieldValidator attached to it and a button to trigger validation. The validation kinda works as the button does not do anything unless the DropDownList has a valid value but I get no error message about it. Why?
