Default Error rendering Validator control


I have a composite control that has a validator in it, but the weird thing is, I have another composite control and the validator works in one, but not in the other. I have the same settings (just copied over); I can't figure it out. In CreateChildControls I have:

rfvSearchText = New RequiredFieldValidator

With rfvSearchText

.ID = "rfvSearchText"

.Display = ValidatorDisplay.Static

.Text = "*"

.ErrorMessage = "Please enter search text"

.ToolTip = .ErrorMessage

.ControlToValidate = txtSearchText.ID

End With

And in the Render method, I render it as such:

If (Me.SearchTextRequiredErrorMessage <> String.Empty) Then


End If

It renders, but it shows by default, whereas the other one is hidden. Any idea why the * appears by default? This is at runtime, not design time. The * appears for the first control, but it properly hides it for the second one.
