RequiredFieldValidator ErrorMessage not displaying after postback

Experts,

I have a few RequiredFieldValidators on my web form. EnableClientScript = False. If there is an error, the error message of the RequiredFieldValidator does not display on PostBack. Currently an alertbox displays informing the user of an error, but it's not obvious where on the form the error is. Am I overlooking something obvious or am I just not using this control correctly?

Thanks in advance.

Hello qdupadhyay. What I had appeared to be correct. But obviously not.  I still don't know what I was doing wrong. But when I cut/pasted your code and changed the target names, it worked. A lot of wasted time on my end. Thank you very much. I can finally move on. THis is very much appreciated!
