How to toggle on/off all validation controls on a web form for testing

I've got a bunch of web forms done with Visual Studio 2005 that have or will have validaiton on each field; mostly RequiredFieldValidators, but others as well.

I want to be able to throw a button on the form temporarily so I can disable all the validation controls for testing purposes.  I sometimes need to test what happens after "Submit" and don't want to have to fill out 165 questions on a form just to see if the next step works.

It's probably not hard to "For each validationControl on this page set Enabled=False" but I'm a beginner and I couldn't find any code to do this.

Thanks.

I got this from http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=1219...just replace the frame parts with validation ctrl
Sub EnableDisableFrameControls()
    Dim ctl As Control
    For i = 0 To Controls.Count - 1
        Set ctl = Controls(i)
        If TypeOf ctl Is Frame Then
            For j = 0 To Controls.Count - 1
                If TypeOf Controls(j) Is Frame Then
                    If Controls(j).Container Is ctl Then
                        Controls(j).Enabled = ctl.Enabled
                    End If
                End If
            Next j
            For j = 0 To Controls.Count - 1
                On Error Resume Next
                If Controls(j).Container Is ctl Then
                    Controls(j).Enabled = ctl.Enabled
                End If
            Next j
        End If
    Next i
End Sub

Thank you!

Perhaps you could also help me with a question concerning SQL Server 2000 and an Excel external data connection?
