StringValidatorAttribute StringValidatorAttribute StringValidatorAttribute StringValidatorAttribute Class

Definition

Declaratively instructs the .NET Framework to perform string validation on a configuration property. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class StringValidatorAttribute sealed : System::Configuration::ConfigurationValidatorAttribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Property)]
public sealed class StringValidatorAttribute : System.Configuration.ConfigurationValidatorAttribute
type StringValidatorAttribute = class
    inherit ConfigurationValidatorAttribute
Public NotInheritable Class StringValidatorAttribute
Inherits ConfigurationValidatorAttribute

Examples

The following example shows how to decorate the properties of a custom ConfigurationSection object using the StringValidatorAttribute object.

[ConfigurationProperty("fileName", DefaultValue = "default.txt",
    IsRequired = true, IsKey = false)]
[StringValidator(InvalidCharacters = " ~!@#$%^&*()[]{}/;'\"|\\",
    MinLength = 1, MaxLength = 60)]
public string FileName
{
    get
    {
        return (string)this["fileName"];
    }
    set
    {
        this["fileName"] = value;
    }
}

<ConfigurationProperty("fileName", _
DefaultValue:="default.txt", _
IsRequired:=True, _
IsKey:=False), _
StringValidator( _
InvalidCharacters:=" ~!@#$%^&*()[]{}/;'""|\", _
MinLength:=1, _
MaxLength:=60)> _
Public Property FileName() As String
    Get
        Return CStr(Me("fileName"))
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As String)
        Me("fileName") = value
    End Set
End Property

Remarks

You use the StringValidatorAttribute to decorate a configuration property. This is to instruct the .NET Framework to validate the property using the StringValidator and pass to it the value of the decorating parameters.

You can apply StringValidatorAttribute objects to property types only.
