Displaying Success Message for validation control in ASP.NET

Posted on 2009-02-12

Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I am trying to add a success message for the correct input type in a asp text box which uses the regularexpression validator . But I could not succeed as there is an errormessage property of ASP.NET which works for me for the incorrect input but I could not found any properties or method of validation control which executes the validation of the text field and gives the result back to the user whether it is success or an error. I have tried the regualrexpressionfieldvalidator.IsValid but it also doesn't worked for me.

You will need to check this through coding

textReplaceResults.Text = "N/A";
        if (Regex.IsMatch(textSubject.Text, textRegex.Text, getRegexOptions())) {
          textResults.Text = "The regex matches part or all of the subject";
        } else {
          textResults.Text = "The regex cannot be matched in the subject";
      catch (Exception ex)
        // Most likely cause is a syntax error in the regular expression
        textResults.Text = "Regex.IsMatch() threw an exception:\r\n" + ex.Message;
