Hi,
I have a form on my aspx page that has several fields , I want to make sure each field is filled in before submiting. I have the group validation on each text input box and the same group validation on the button, but I want an error message to show when the submit button is clicked and the validation group is not valid( not all fields have been filled in)
Is this possible?
Thanks
<div>
                                	<label for="eventName">Event Name: *</label> <asp:TextBox ID="eventName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                	<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator7" ControlToValidate="eventName" ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" runat="server"  Display="Dynamic" />
                                </div>
       
                                <div>
                                	<label for="venueName">Venue Name: *</label> <asp:TextBox ID="venueName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                	<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator6" ControlToValidate="venueName" ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" runat="server"  Display="Dynamic" />
                                </div>
 
<div>
                                	<label for="town">Town: *</label> <asp:TextBox ID="town" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                                	<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator69" ControlToValidate="town" ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" runat="server"  Display="Dynamic" />
                                </div>
                                
 
 
 <asp:Button ID="SubmitButton" runat="server" OnClick="AddParkDetails" Text="Button" CssClass="submitButton" ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation"  />

Hi

Use ValidationSummary control and set the properties
ShowMessageBox = true
ShowSummary = false

I have included a validation summary control in your example.
 <div>
        <label for="eventName">
            Event Name: *</label>
        <asp:TextBox ID="eventName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator7" ControlToValidate="eventName"
            ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" runat="server" Display="Dynamic" />
    </div>
    <div>
        <label for="venueName">
            Venue Name: *</label>
        <asp:TextBox ID="venueName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator6" ControlToValidate="venueName"
            ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" runat="server" Display="Dynamic" />
    </div>
    <div>
        <label for="town">
            Town: *</label>
        <asp:TextBox ID="town" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator69" ControlToValidate="town"
            ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" runat="server" Display="Dynamic" />
    </div>
    <asp:ValidationSummary ID="ValidationSummary1" runat="server" ShowMessageBox="true" ShowSummary="false" ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" />
    <asp:Button ID="SubmitButton" runat="server" OnClick="AddParkDetails" Text="Button"
        CssClass="submitButton" ValidationGroup="RegisterValidation" />
