CustomValidator.ServerValidate CustomValidator.ServerValidate CustomValidator.ServerValidate CustomValidator.ServerValidate Event

Definition

Occurs when validation is performed on the server.

public:
 event System::Web::UI::WebControls::ServerValidateEventHandler ^ ServerValidate;
public event System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventHandler ServerValidate;
member this.ServerValidate : System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventHandler 
Public Custom Event ServerValidate As ServerValidateEventHandler 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for a server-side CustomValidator control. It creates a custom validation routine, validates the value of a TextBox control for an even number, and then displays the result of the validation.

Important

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.

Remarks

The ServerValidate event is raised when validation is performed on the server. This event is used to provide a custom validation routine for an input control, such as a TextBox control.
