Code First validation issues

Im having a difficult time getting the required field error message to behave properly in my code first model.

What happens is when i click a submit button to add a record all I see are asterisks.  But I have custom error messages and none of them show up.

Is there anyway to override this behavior?  Even will use javascript if I have to.

Please see 3 attached screens showing ui markup(formview), model code, and the resulting page when run.

I'm not sure about the aspx page syntax but in razor you need to add the ValidationSummary markup to the page like

            <div class="editor-field">
                @Html.PasswordFor(m => m.OldPassword)
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(m => m.OldPassword)
            </div>

Can you check whether you are missing the corresponding markup?

For the record this is .net 4.5 and vs 2012 and im basing my project off a concept that scott hanselman from microsoft blogged about recently called model binding with webforms.

Ive done mvc in the past but im not yet ready to forget the convenience of controls that webforms offer.  So thats why scotts example intrigued me.  In the past I just added the required attribute to the model and the validation was automatically there.  There wasnt a need for any validation summary or required field validators.   Im also using DynamicControls for the text boxes.  These are inside a formview.   See attached screenshot above showing my markup.  

Here are the links to scotts demos.
