I want to design a custom validator , that fires only when the element which it validates is visible in the form, otherwise it should not fire.

I know that the javascript function for Custom Validator takes the source and eventargs parameters, but how can I get the ID of the element on which the custom validator was applied ?

If I get to know that I can handle the rest . Please tell me how can I do that ?

sample below:
js:
        function Validate(source, args) {
              if (document.getElementById(source.controltovalidate).value == "invalidString") {
                   args.IsValid = false;
                }
            }
 
aspx:
    <asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1"
            runat="server" ErrorMessage="CustomValidator" 
            ControlToValidate="someTextBox" ClientValidationFunction="Validate">
     </asp:CustomValidator>

source.controltovalidate is undefined when the Validate function gets called.

It's not working.

it's working here. do you have ControlToValidate set up correctly? Like below:
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1"
            runat="server" ErrorMessage="CustomValidator" ControlToValidate="TextBox1" ClientValidationFunction="Validate"></asp:CustomValidator>

Your above code is working fine.
But what I need to do is in the following function which is not working :

function validate(source,e)
    {
        if(document.getElementById(source.controltovalidate).style.display=='none')
            e.IsValid=true;
            else
            {
                      if(document.getElementById(source.controltovalidate).value=='')
                             e.IsValid=false;
                     else
                           e.IsValid=true;
            }
    }
