Are those the only numbers you want or you want to have any valid money value?

Here's one:
^-?(\d{1,3}(\,\d{3})*|(\d+))(\.\d{2})$

Open in new window


All below will be valid. But it can be adjust to your requirement.

10.00
1.00
0.00
0.02
0.00
-10.00
-1.00
-0.00
-0.02
-0.00
100.00
1000.00
10,000.00
100,000.00

This  will not allow commas:
^-?([1-9]\d*|(\d+))(\.\d{2})$

Open in new window


FYI: Try tool like Expresso for creating/testing regexs..

This worked too.
 
^\$?[0-9]+(,[0-9]{3})*(\.[0-9]{2})?$

For the "txtpriceamount can not be blank.":

You simply add a RequireFieldValidator for the textbox in addition to your ReqFieldValidator.
