errorprovider with validationsummary

Berico asked

Webforms has a validationsummary that is connected to the validators. Is there any way to have errorprovider to send its error to a label for example instead of tootip?
Watch Question

You can enumerate the errors by looping though the control collection on your form. Won't be fast on big forms with loads of controls but will work.

Add a label that you want the errors to be displayed on and write something like this:
myErrorLabel.Text = string.Empty;

foreach (Control ctrl in myErrorProvider.ContainerControl.Controls)
  myErrorLabel.Text += myErrorProvider.GetError(ctrl) + Environment.NewLine;
