RequiredFieldvalidator displays error too early

Preben Zacho

Hi there

I have a RequiredFieldValidator that displays the text "Required field" for
a textbox. The problem is, that the text "Required field" is displayed
BEFORE the user presses the button to accept the form. Why does this occure?
Must be some setting I've missed, cause in other forms it works as it
should, where the text is not displayed until the user click the accept
button.

My textbox and validator looks like this:

<asp:TextBox ID="tbFirstName" runat="server"
Width="204px"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="reqFirstNameUser"
runat="server" ControlToValidate="tbFirstName"
Enabled="True" ErrorMessage="Required field"
Display="Dynamic">
</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

HI Preben,

You can chceck it by setting "AutoPostBack" property of textbox to
"true", if it can help your coding logic..

I will rather check if there is already a control on the page that is
causing auto post back.

Well, I have another control in the form where AutoPostBack="True" (a text
box for searching).

Exactly when is this type of validation executed? And how do I then override
it, so the text is not written before the accept button is triggered?

Why not set the ValidationGroup property of the textbox so the validation occurs only when the according button is pressed?
