The tag below validate date with mm/dd/yy format but cold not validate date such as this 12/31/2008 12:00:00 AM. How can I modify the tag to validate date such as this 12/31/2008 12:00:00 AM
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularValidatorEndDate" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtEndDate"
                        ErrorMessage="Enter a valid End Date (i.e. mm/dd/yy)" ValidationExpression="^\d{1,2}(\-|\/|\.)\d{1,2}\1\d{2}$"

Use a CompareValidator instead of a RegularExpresionValidator.  use the DataTypeCheck operator to require that it's a Date.

That will work MUCH better!
