Hi,

I need a requiredfieldValidator / regularExpressValidator which accepts only digits and it should accept
6 to 7 numbers typed in a textbox

for eg : 898838 (valid) or 9282798    (anything less than 6 or greater than 7 should throw error)


thanks in advance.

I give you a little explanation for my above solution for better understanding:

Important is: ValidationExpression="[0-9]{6,7}"

this means to take only digits 0-9, and number of these digits is from 6 to 7
