.NET Mobile Input Validation

previous next

Validation Controls are used to validate the data entered by a user.

Validation Controls

Validation controls are used to validate the data entered by a user.

Validation controls allow you to validate an input control (like a TextBox), and display a message when validation fails.

Each validation control performs a specific type of validation (like validating against a specific value or a range of values).

By default, page validation is performed when a command control is clicked. You can prevent validation when a control is clicked by setting the CausesValidation property to false.

Validating Input

This page has two forms:

<%@ Page
<%@ Register
Assembly="System.Web.Mobile" %>
<script runat="server">

Sub Page2(Sender as Object,E as EventArgs)
If Page.IsValid Then
  text2.Text="You are " & age.text & " years old"
end if
End Sub


<Mobile:Form id="f1" runat="server">
<Mobile:CompareValidator runat="server"
You must be at least 18

<Mobile:Label runat="server">Age?</Mobile:Label>
<Mobile:TextBox id="age" runat="server" />
<Mobile:Command OnClick="Page2" runat="server">

<Mobile:Form id="f2" runat="server">
<Mobile:Label id="text2" runat="server" />

The first form has a label with the text "Age?", an input box to input the age, and a submit button.

The second page is activated by the submit button on the first page, and displays a response.

If the input validates as error, an error message is displayed.

When the application runs on a mobile device, the two pages will display like this:

Form 1


Form 2

You are 21 years old

The ValidationSummary Control

The previous example used a CompareValidator control to validate an input field. The field to validate was defined by the attribute ContolToValidate.

You can also use a ValidationSummary control with the attribute FormToValidate, to validate all the input of a form.

This way you can display a summary of errors instead of one error at the time.
