CompareValidator Problem

I'm sure this is a simple mistake but I have a CompareValidator that appears to be comparing the values within the text boxes as String vs Integers.  When I enter 3 in the txtCapacity and 15 in txtMaxCapacity the validation is triggered as an error.  What am I doing wrong.  Thanks!

This is my compare validator
<asp:CompareValidator ID="CompareValidator9" runat="server" 
                         ControlToCompare="txtCapacity" ControlToValidate="txtMaxCapacity" 
                         ErrorMessage="CompareValidator" Operator="GreaterThanEqual" Type="Integer"></asp:CompareValidator>

Open in new window


This is the textboxes
<td>Daily Capacity:*</td>
                            <td>
                                <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtCapacity" MaxLength="3" Columns="10" 
                                    Width="201px" />
                            </td>
                        </tr> 
                          <tr>
                            <td>Max Open Capacity:*</td>
                            <td>
                                <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtMaxCapacity" MaxLength="3" Columns="10" 
                                    Width="201px" />
                            </td>

When you say "Operator='GreaterThanEqual'" you are indicating you want txtCapacity's value to be greater than or equal to txtMaxCapacity's value. Try switching to "Operator='LessThanEqual'".

>ControlToCompare="txtCapacity" ControlToValidate="txtMaxCapacity"

Aren't those wrong way around?

I have tried mixing it up every which way.  It will validate as expected if I enter txtCapacity=4 and txtMaxCapacity=5 but if I enter txtCapacity=4 and txtMaxCapacity=12 then it triggers it as txtMaxCapacity is less than txtCapacity.  I have even tried setting up a custom validator but I get the same results.  Am I inadvertently assigning the field as text and not realizing it???

The problem was caused by 2 validation tags and one was correct and the other incorrect.  Once I removed the incorrect one everything fired correctly
