I have a radgrid and an aspx page, there are validations on the page and separate validations on the radgrid. when a user clicks an Insert or Update (on the popup of an add or edit record) on the radgrid , I  want only the radgrid validations to fire not the page. how can I do this ?

<table width="300px" cellpadding="2px">
         <tr>
              <td align="right" style="width: 306px" rowspan="2">
                        Comments&nbsp;
                        <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="rev1" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtSpecialInstructions"
                             ErrorMessage="Please limit comments to 240 characters or less." ValidationExpression="[\s\S]{0,240}">*</asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
	  	</td>	
	</tr>
</table>
 
<!-- radGrid -->

Does the radgrid have a validationgroup property that you can set on the grid and on the insert and update buttons?

yes I believe there is. I did this and now I do not see the validation at all. do I need to mention the group ? Can you please provide an example as to how to do this ?
 <ValidationSettings CommandsToValidate="PerformInsert,Update" ValidationGroup="gridGroup" />
 
 <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="rfvLineDesc" ControlToValidate="txtLineDesc"
                   ErrorMessage="Please enter the Line Description" runat="server" ValidationGroup="gridGroup" Display="None">*</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

Just a hint.

Don't forget to put the validations on the page also in a (different) validationgroup.

In your validator, you have the Display property set to "None".  This will cause the message to never be displayed.  Try a value of "Dynamic" and that should fix it if I understand your issue correctly.
