I am working on a Windows Forms application. I have a form that contains a ToolStrip. I have set the ToolStrip.CausesValidation = true, but a control with the focus does not raise a validated event when I click a button in the ToolStrip. What am I doing wrong here? Thanks.

The problem is that the toolstripbutton object doesn't support the CausesValidation event.

I just made a quick test app to confirm this.  When the toolstrip button is clicked, calling the Form.Validate function may be your simplest option.

Otherwise, you could do something more complicated like keeping track of which textbox/control fired the TextChanged or similar event for example and only calling validate foreach one of the controls with changed text/ data.
