ValidatorEnable not working

I am trying to use the ValidatorEnable() on a page.
As I debug, the code calls the Javascript with the Validators. I can even see that the Validators get enabled after the javascript function runs.

But then no validation message shows on the page for the validations.
If I enable the same Validators thru backend code, they work as needed. But I need to do this on the page when controls are changed, so I need client side ValidatorEnable().

What am I missing?

It might help if you posted a sample of what your validator code looks like. I take it you are using CustomValidators. Are you setting args.IsValid? Do you have a ValidationSummary on the page? Are you using ValidationGroups? What happens if you try to manually call Page_ClientValidate() on the client side (or Page_ClientValidate('groupname') is using ValidationGroups)?
