Hello everyone,

I have been looking for days for a good solution to this and have had no luck.  What I want to do is simply use an ASP.net validator (probably regular expression validator) to validate a credit card expiration date in the format of (MM/YYYY) on the client side. Does anyone have any ideas of how to implement this.  If there is no way to use an ASP.net validator for this, does anyone know of a good javascript to use?  
Thanks

Jay

Use Regex:

^((0[1-9])|(1[0-2]))\/(\d{4})$

The above regex code calculates only the month and year. It can not evaluate that if the date is less then today or not.

Also read http://www.codeproject.com/KB/validation/creditcardvalidator.aspx

For more complex conditions use custom validator.
