 <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator5" runat="server"  
                                     
                                     Text="MM/DD/YYYY"  
                                    ErrorMessage="*"
                                    ControlToValidate="txtAvailableDate"    
                                    ValidationExpression="" />

try this..

 <asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator5" runat="server"  
                                     Text="MM/DD/YYYY"  
                                    ErrorMessage="*"
                                    ControlToValidate="txtAvailableDate"    
                                    ValidationExpression="^(|(0[1-9])|(1[0-2]))\/((0[1-9])|(1\d)|(2\d)|(3[0-1]))\/((\d{4}))$" />

Expression      ^(|(0[1-9])|(1[0-2]))\/((0[1-9])|(1\d)|(2\d)|(3[0-1]))\/((\d{4}))$

Description      This expression matches dates formatted as MM/DD/YYYY where months and days must be 2 digits each, zero padded. It is not perfect - it allows DD to be from 01 to 31 regardless of the month.

Matches      01/01/2001 | 02/30/2001 | 12/31/2002

Non-Matches      1/1/02 | 1/1/2002 | 1/25/2002
