This is a related question. I think I know what's going on but not sure how to fix it.
I have a multiview. On the 9th view, I have a repeater. Inside it, i have radiobuttonlist,a textbox, customvalidator and a requiredfieldvalidtor. I have the requiredfiedvalidator for textbox set to disabled (see related question for the code).

I also have a ValidationSummary for the entire page.

That solution works.  I click "NEXT" in multiview. The onServerValidate is called. RequiredFieldValidator is enabled and I get the RequiredFieldValidator for the textbox enabled. BUT, the ValidationSummary doesnt popup unless i click the NEXT box the second time. I think i need to somehow trigger the ValidationSummary as well but not sure.

I've attached a screenshot of how the page looks. The repeater is in the related question. I have the validationsummary and event for the NEXT button below.
<asp:ValidationSummary ID="ValidationSummary1"
                    ShowMessageBox="true"
                    ShowSummary="false"
                    HeaderText="You must enter a value in the following fields:"
                    DisplayMode="BulletList" 
                    EnableClientScript="true"
                    runat="server"/>  

----------

  protected void btnNext_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {//multiview next button
        if (Page.IsValid)
          mvApplication.ActiveViewIndex++;
    }
