CauseValidation property of a ASP.NET Page

My question is---- when you set a asp.net button's CauseValidation property is set to true,
 the Page.Validate() method is called automatically on the server side. You do not need to specifically code
Validate(); to call it. The CauseValidation property causes the Validate() method to be called implicitly.

I am correct?

That is correct, however the default setting for a button is CausesValidation = true so you don't need to specifically set it when setting it to true unless you are using validation groups.
The CausesValidation property is generally specified (and set to false) for a Cancel or Reset button.
