aspdotnet_website_programming thread: Web Form Validation


Message #1 by "Larkin Young" <youngld@j...> on Mon, 20 Jan 2003 03:57:18
This sort of concerns my last posting, dealing with asp.net page 
templates. My situation is this: I have a siteheader control on the page 
that has a login and signout button, which causes a postback when 
clicked. I also have a member profile page that has several textboxes 
that have requiredfieldvalidators associated with them, as well as a 
textfield that requires a password to be entered for any changes to be 
made to the user's profile. The problem arises when the user clicks the 
Sign Out link, it cause the form validators to be raised if the user has 
made any changes and if the password isn't entered. This is not a sreious 
problem, but could cause some confusion for the users..can anyone offer a 
sugggestion for how to have some sort of conditional to check what 
control fired the postback event or some way around this problem?

Solution--Select the link button on disign view and go the property of the 
link button, then look for causevalidation and set it to either 
true/false. If you set it to false the link button won't fire the 
validation.
