Hi,
For both date and integers you can use a Regular ExpressionValidator.
To Validate a date it would be soemthing like this:
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator id="RegularExpressionValidator1" runat="server" ErrorMessage="RegularExpressionValidator"  ControlToValidate="txtDate" ValidationExpression="^(((0[1-9]|[12]\d|3[01])\/(0[13578]|1[02])\/((1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)\d{2}))|((0[1-9]|[12]\d|30)\/(0[13456789]|1[012])\/((1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)\d{2}))|((0[1-9]|1\d|2[0-8])\/02\/((1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)\d{2}))|(29\/02\/((1[6-9]|[2-9]\d)(0[48]|[2468][048]|[13579][26])|((16|[2468][048]|[3579][26])00))))$">Date needs to be in the format dd/MM/yyyy</asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
And for intergers it would be
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator id="RegularExpressionValidator1" runat="server" ErrorMessage="RegularExpressionValidator"  ControlToValidate="txtDate" ValidationExpression="\d{4}">Date needs to be in the format dd/MM/yyyy</asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
the 4 in \d{4} is the length of the integers
Hope this helps

A little note on the integer validation.
\d{4} will take 0000 as a valid integer.
Use this to validate 4-digit integer:
^[1-9]\d{3}$
For any length, use
^[0-9]|{1-9]\d*$
