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?

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>
