I have a gridview with Checkbox, dropdownlist, textbox controls
I want to use the Required field validator based on these conditions
if checkbox.checked=true

then i want to fire the required field validator for the dropdown list to see if the dropdown is selected or not.

if the dropdown.selected.item.text='Between' then i want to fire the required field validator for the textbox . Please tell me how to do this. i spent hours to figure this out but i couldn't.

Thanks

I'm not 100% sure what you're doing here but right off, my guess is that  you're not grabbing the control correctly.  Inside a GridView, you need  to do a .FindControl() and cast accordingly.
 
 Therefore, let's say the ID of your ASP .NET HtmlInputCheckBox is "myCheckBox"
 
 Then, you'd do this within the GridView (foreach item)
 
 HtmlInputCheckBox checkBox = (HtmlInputCheckBox)item.FindControl("myCheckBox");
 
 if (checBox.Checked)
 {
 etc;
 }
 
 same goes for ANY control within the GridView.

Hi ,
 I tried doing this way

 for (int i = 0; i <= GridView1.Rows.Count - 1; i++)
        {
            CheckBox includeintest = (CheckBox)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[3].FindControl("chkincludeTest");
            DropDownList validation = (DropDownList)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[4].FindControl("drpvalidation");
            TextBox txtspecA = (TextBox)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[5].FindControl("txtvalueA");
            TextBox txtspecB = (TextBox)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[6].FindControl("txtValueB");
            DropDownList drpuom = (DropDownList)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[7].FindControl("drpuom");
            RequiredFieldValidator reqvalidation = (RequiredFieldValidator)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[4].FindControl("Reqvalidation");
            RequiredFieldValidator reqspeca = (RequiredFieldValidator)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[5].FindControl("Reqspeca");
            RequiredFieldValidator reqspecb = (RequiredFieldValidator)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[6].FindControl("Reqspecb");
            RequiredFieldValidator requom = (RequiredFieldValidator)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[7].FindControl("Requom");
            CompareValidator compare = (CompareValidator)GridView1.Rows[i].Cells[6].FindControl("CompareValidator1");
            if (includeintest.Checked == true)
            {
                reqvalidation.Enabled = true;
                reqspeca.Enabled = true;
                requom.Enabled = true;

             
           

            }
            else
            {
                reqvalidation.Enabled = false;
                reqspeca.Enabled = false;
                requom.Enabled = false;
                reqspecb.Enabled = false;
                compare.Enabled = false;
             

            }
        }

If i click Submit , then for the first time its not validating anything, just doing a page refresh, if i again press submit, then its validating. how do i fix this issue. Please help  me

When is it you are trying to do ...I guess when Editing a row correct?
You can do this in code-behind with following steps:
1: Initially set your DDL and TextBox validator enable or disable according to the state of your Checkbox. And by this I mean initially when your Gv is loaded.
2: Set AutoPostBack=true for your DDL and Chb
3: In the Checkbox OnCheckChanged event, you enable or disable the DDL validator and TB Validator like shown below:

 protected void CheckBox1_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        CheckBox cb = (CheckBox)sender;
       
        RequiredFieldValidator ddlrfv = (RequiredFieldValidator )cb.NamingContainer.FindControl("ddlRFV");
        RequiredFieldValidator tbrfv = (RequiredFieldValidator )cb.NamingContainer.FindControl("tbRFV");

     if(cb.Checked)
    {      
        if(ddlrfv!=null){
             ddlrfv.Enabled=true;
            }
    }
    else
    {
        if(ddlrfv!=null){
             ddlrfv.Enabled=false;
            }
          if(tblrfv!=null){
             ddlrfv.Enabled=true;
            }
    }
}
4: Add OnSelectedIndexChanged event to DDL like checkbox. Get it's Selected value and see if it is "Between" then Find TbRFV and enable it else disable it.

Note: You might be able to do this in javascript which might be trick like above.

Please find the attached code. I have mentioned HTML and Button_click code behind as well.

What am trying to do is when i first hit Submit, it should validate all the controls if everything is ok then i want Edit button and Save button to be visible and Btnsubmit to be invisible.  , its not working since its refreshing the page two times and then only it validates. I would appreciate your help.
