Validation rearing its ugly head.
I have a MasterPage with multiple controls or webparts depending on what's happening.
Anyway i have a searchbox control with 2 textboxes. I use the
RequiredFieldValidator and a ValidatorCalloutExtender for each textbox. I have also implemented the TextBoxWatermarkExtender and AutoCompleteExtender from the ajaxtoolkit. I load this search control on every page. When i am using the search control, it works like a champ. However, some pages seem to activate the validation routines when i am not even using the search control. So, in order to post page i have to put some data in the search box. Any ideas?
