Form Validation in the Compact Framework

What is the recommended way to validate a Compact Framework form?  With no CausesValidation property available, I think setting AutoValidate=EnablePreventFocusChange is out.  Otherwise, the user is effectively trapped inside of that control with no way out other than to close the form.  Do you leave it on EnableAllowFocusChange and simply track the validation state of the form with variables (ie Control lastErrorControl).

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I just ended up creating a list of controls and there corresponding error message.  Upon successful validation, a control removes itself from the list.  I then check this list for Count==0 upon a particular action and the refocus to the first one in the list.
