The following code example demonstrates how to override the AddAttributesToRender method in a custom server control so that the RegularExpressionValidator error message always displays as bold.

using System.Web;
using System.Security.Permissions;

namespace Samples.AspNet.CS.Controls
{
  [AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Level=AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)]
  public sealed class CustomRegularExpressionValidatorAddAttributesToRender : System.Web.UI.WebControls.RegularExpressionValidator
  {
    protected override void AddAttributesToRender(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter writer)
    {
      // Show the CompareValidator's error message as bold.
      writer.AddStyleAttribute(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriterStyle.FontWeight, "bold");
      
      // Call the Base's AddAttributesToRender method.
      base.AddAttributesToRender(writer);
    }
  }
}
Imports System.Web
Imports System.Security.Permissions

Namespace Samples.AspNet.VB.Controls
    <AspNetHostingPermission(SecurityAction.Demand, Level:=AspNetHostingPermissionLevel.Minimal)> _
    Public NotInheritable Class CustomRegularExpressionValidatorAddAttributesToRender
        Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.RegularExpressionValidator

        Protected Overrides Sub AddAttributesToRender(ByVal writer As System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter)

            ' Show the CompareValidator's error message as bold.
            writer.AddStyleAttribute(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriterStyle.FontWeight, "bold")

            ' Call the Base's AddAttributesToRender method.
            MyBase.AddAttributesToRender(writer)
        End Sub
    End Class
End Namespace

The following code example demonstrates how to use the use the CustomRegularExpressionValidatorAddAttributesToRender control, defined in the preceding example, on a Web Forms page.

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.
