Problem in validation control

Hi

I have created the validation summary control dynamically(see code section)


even if validation fails I am not able to see the validation
ValidationSummary oValidationSummary = new ValidationSummary();
                    oValidationSummary.ID = "val";
                    oValidationSummary.DisplayMode = ValidationSummaryDisplayMode.BulletList;
                    oValidationSummary.EnableClientScript = true;
                    oValidationSummary.ShowSummary = true;
                    
 
                    CustomValidator oCustomValidator = new CustomValidator();
                    oCustomValidator.ID = "cvName";
                    oCustomValidator.Visible = true;
                    oCustomValidator.ControlToValidate = ID;
                    oCustomValidator.Enabled = true;
                    oCustomValidator.ValidateEmptyText = true;
                    oCustomValidator.ErrorMessage = MTBErrorMessage;
 
                    oCustomValidator.ServerValidate += new ServerValidateEventHandler(oCustomValidator_ServerValidate);
 
void oCustomValidator_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
        {
            Validation oValidation = new Validation();
            bool status = true;
            status = oValidation.IsValid(MTBValidationType, Text);
 
            args.IsValid = status;
}

Try putting breakpoints on the Page_Init code. If it does not solve, go to Tools > Options > Debugging and check if a certain setting is prohibiting debugger to break in user/custom control.
One more thought, if you have placed this code in a separate DLL and only referencing this DLL in your active project withou Debug Symbols, you may have the problem with debugger.

Dynamically created controls should be added from within the Page_Init event even on postbacks, otherwise there expected events would not fire.
Let me get back to you with a link to a recent discussion on EE on about the same matter.

If you are asking about WebUserControl, then yeah surely you can add. And if you are Custom Web Server Controls, I think it should allow you to have this.

I have implemented in that way(code section)

but the debugging control is not going on Page init
private void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (MTBErrorMessageControlType == MTBErrorMessageControl.VALIDATIONSUMMARY)
            {
                ValidationSummary oValidationSummary = new ValidationSummary();
                oValidationSummary.ID = "val";
                oValidationSummary.DisplayMode = ValidationSummaryDisplayMode.BulletList;
                oValidationSummary.EnableClientScript = true;
                oValidationSummary.ShowSummary = true;
 
 
                CustomValidator oCustomValidator = new CustomValidator();
                oCustomValidator.ID = "cvName";
                oCustomValidator.Visible = true;
                oCustomValidator.ControlToValidate = ID;
                oCustomValidator.Enabled = true;
                oCustomValidator.ValidateEmptyText = true;
                oCustomValidator.ErrorMessage = MTBErrorMessage;
                oCustomValidator.ServerValidate += new ServerValidateEventHandler(oCustomValidator_ServerValidate);
            }
        }
        void oCustomValidator_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args)
        {
            Validation oValidation = new Validation();
            bool status = true;
            status = oValidation.IsValid(MTBValidationType, Text);
 
 
            args.IsValid = status;
 
        }

I just tested at my machine in VS2008 that the Page_Init on a WebUserControl is being debugged by the Debugger. Please look into the settings of VS2008 Debugger.
