ASPxValidationSummary

The ASPxValidationSummary control allows you to summarize validation errors from multiple controls and display them in a single block. This helps to organize screen space more effectively if validation is required for several editors.

Main Features

  • Three Render Modes

    Use the ASPxValidationSummary.RenderMode property to specify the manner in which ASPxValidationSummary displays validation error text within its panel. The following properties allow you to display error text as a table, a bulleted list, or an ordered list:

    Appearance Affected Properties
    ASPxValidationSummary_table RenderMode=Table
    ASPxValidationSummary_bulletedlist RenderMode=BulletedList
    ASPxValidationSummary_orderedlist RenderMode=OrderedList
  • Show Error Text as a Link

    You can add a link to validation error text. To do this, set the ASPxValidationSummary.ShowErrorAsLink property to true. When a user clicks the link, focus moves to the corresponding invalid editor.
