I have 6 user control ascx pages, there is a textbox and submit button in each of them. I have a aspx page to include all those 6 user control pages.
I have a requiredfieldvalidator with onsubmit to check empty of all textbox. If the text box is empty and user clicks submit, it will be prompted.

Here is the aspx code

<asp:textbox id="text1" runat="server"></asp:textbox>
<asp:requiredfieldvalidator id="RequiredText1" runat="server" EnableViewState="False" ControlToValidate="text1" Display="None" ErrorMessage="Please input 1"></asp:requiredfieldvalidator>
<asp:validationsummary id="ValidationSummary" runat="server" EnableViewState="False" ShowMessageBox="True" ShowSummary="False"></asp:validationsummary>
<asp:button id="button1" runat="server" text="submit"></asp:button>

<asp:textbox id="text2" runat="server"></asp:textbox>
<asp:requiredfieldvalidator id="RequiredText2" runat="server" EnableViewState="False" ControlToValidate="text2" Display="None" ErrorMessage="Please input 2"></asp:requiredfieldvalidator>
<asp:validationsummary id="ValidationSummary" runat="server" EnableViewState="False" ShowMessageBox="True" ShowSummary="False"></asp:validationsummary>
<asp:button id="button2" runat="server" text="submit"></asp:button>

However, i just want to validate the onclick button, the remaining 5 textbox empty is ok. The code will prompt if one of six textbox is empty. So, I need to input text to all 6 textbox and it will not be prompted, how to solve it?

I use VC#

There should be an extended property on all the TextBoxes that allows you to not fire the Validator. I think it's the CausesValidation property.

So what you basically wish to do is submit if one of the 6 textboxes is filled? If that's the case then using an self made validation is the best solution.

do the following on button.click

if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(Textbox1.Text) || (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(Textbox2.Text))
{
    //Do something
}
Else
{
    Errorlabel.visible = true;// The error label should be on the page with forcolor red and the error tekst.
    Errorlabel.databind();
}
