Hi

Thanks for your reply, Actually Its a Common fields Address custom control with textboxes and labels. I have a provision to diable textboxes and lable at run time, So you can custamize it according to your need.Till that time, i am rendering the textboxes using override render method. I am not creating an instance of the textbox which you used in your above mentioned code. Is there a way i can add client side validation using embedded javascript file.  I think if you rendering a control , client side validation is the best solution.
Or
I would go for creating a instance of the texboxes and label and individually go for ValidationPropertyAttribute check .
Suggestions are welcomed.
Cheers

need your view point.

Instance method is the best one. You can directly bind  the custom control to validation controls.
