I have two fields on my PasswordRecovery control (template)... I don't want to require both, either one or the other. How do I do that? Is there a way to do it with the RequiredFieldValidator's? I don't see it in the properties.

                               <tr>
                                    <td align="right">
                                        <asp:Label ID="UserNameLabel" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="UserName">Alias:</asp:Label></td>
                                    <td align="left">
                                        <asp:TextBox ID="UserName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="UserNameRequired" runat="server"
                                            ControlToValidate="UserName" ErrorMessage="Alias or Email is required."
                                            ToolTip="Alias or Email is required." ValidationGroup="PasswordRecovery1"
                                            ForeColor="DarkRed">*</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
                                        <asp:Button ID="SubmitButton" runat="server" CommandName="Submit"
                                            Text="Submit" CssClass="buttonstyle" ValidationGroup="PasswordRecovery1" />
                                    </td>
                                </tr>
                                <tr>
                                    <td align="right">
                                        <asp:Label ID="EmailLabel" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="Email">Email Address:</asp:Label></td>
                                    <td align="left">
                                        <asp:TextBox ID="Email" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="EmailRequired" runat="server"
                                            ControlToValidate="Email" ErrorMessage="Alias or Email is required."
                                            ToolTip="Alias or Email is required." ValidationGroup="PasswordRecovery1"
                                            ForeColor="DarkRed">*</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
                                        <asp:Button ID="SubmitButton1" runat="server" CommandName="Submit"
                                            Text="Submit" CssClass="buttonstyle" ValidationGroup="PasswordRecovery1" />
                                    </td>
                                </tr>

check this out.

<asp:FileUpload id="FileUpload1" runat="server"/>
<asp:requiredfieldvalidator ID="rfv1" ValidationGroup="Group1" ErrorMessage = "Need to Fill in Value!" ControlToValidate= "FileUpload1"
             runat="server"/>

 

<asp:FileUpload id="FileUpload2" runat="server"/>
<asp:requiredfieldvalidator ID="rfv2" ValidationGroup="Group2" ErrorMessage="Need to Fill in Value!" ControlToValidate= "FileUpload2"
            runat="server"/>


            <asp:button ID="btnFileUpload1" Text="FileUpload1" ValidationGroup="Group1" runat="server" OnClick="FileUpload1_Click"/>
           <asp:button ID="btnFileUpload2" Text="FileUpload2" ValidationGroup="Group2" runat="server" OnClick="FileUpload2_Click"/>

Creating a validation group which will allow you to have any one of them to be validated.

No you can not do it with Validator control
but u can do it with Javascript function

on your button

<asp:button id="abc" runat="server" onClientClick="javascript: return validate();" />
here your javscript function validate will return true or false for submit event and also javascirpt function set message on the client side
thanx
