RangeAttribute RangeAttribute RangeAttribute RangeAttribute Class

Definition

Specifies the numeric range constraints for the value of a data field.

public ref class RangeAttribute : System::ComponentModel::DataAnnotations::ValidationAttribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Field | System.AttributeTargets.Parameter | System.AttributeTargets.Property, AllowMultiple=false)]
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Property | System.AttributeTargets.Field, AllowMultiple=false)]
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Property | System.AttributeTargets.Field | System.AttributeTargets.Parameter, AllowMultiple=false)]
public class RangeAttribute : System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.ValidationAttribute

Examples

The following example shows how to use the RangeAttribute to customize formatting for a data field. The example performs the following steps:

  • Implements a metadata partial class and the associated metadata class.

  • In the associated metadata class, it applies the RangeAttribute attribute to obtain the following results:

    • Apply the attribute to a data field of type integer.

    • Apply the attribute to an integer data field and define a custom validation error message.

    • Apply the attribute to a DateTime data field and define a custom validation error message.

using System;
using System.Web.DynamicData;
using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations;
using System.ComponentModel;

[MetadataType(typeof(ProductMetaData))]
public partial class Product
{

}


public class ProductMetaData
{
    
    [Range(10, 1000, 
        ErrorMessage = "Value for {0} must be between {1} and {2}.")]
    public object Weight;

    [Range(300, 3000)]
    public object ListPrice;

    [Range(typeof(DateTime), "1/2/2004", "3/4/2004",
        ErrorMessage = "Value for {0} must be between {1} and {2}")]
    public object SellEndDate;

}
 
Imports System
Imports System.Web.DynamicData
Imports System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations
Imports System.ComponentModel

<MetadataType(GetType(ProductMetaData))> _
Partial Public Class Product

End Class


Public Class ProductMetaData
    
    <Range(10, 1000, _
           ErrorMessage:="Value for {0} must be between {1} and {2}.")> _
    Public Weight As Object

    <Range(300, 3000)> _
    Public ListPrice As Object

    <Range(GetType(DateTime), "1/2/2004", "3/4/2004", _
           ErrorMessage:="Value for {0} must be between {1} and {2}")> _
    Public SellEndDate As Object

End Class

To compile the example, you need the following:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 or Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition SP1.

  • A data-driven Web site. This enables you to create a data context for the database and the class that contains the data field to customize. For more information, see Walkthrough: Creating a New Dynamic Data Web Site using Scaffolding.

Remarks

When you apply this attribute to a data field, you must follow the guidelines for how to use validation attributes. For more information, see ASP.NET Dynamic Data Guidelines.
