ASP.NET Compare Validator

I have a web page that contains 3 textboxes

-  OldPwd
-  NewPwd
-  ConfirmPwd

I want to use the control validator to check that the OldPwd does not match the NewPwd.

Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you try something like below:

<asp:CompareValidator ID="CompareValidator1"
     runat="server"
     ControlToCompare="NewPassword" // ID of your new password field
     ControlToValidate="CurrentPassword"  //ID of  current password field
     ErrorMessage="You should enter different password."
     ForeColor="Red">
</asp:CompareValidator>
