The code sample below implements custom validation without using any predefined validation capabilities. Note that you should set the ValidationSettings.EnableCustomValidation property to true to show an error frame.

function OnAgeValidation(s, e) {
     var age = tbAge.GetText();
     if (age == null || age == "")
          return;
     var digits = "0123456789";
     for (var i = 0; i < age.length; i++) {
          if (digits.indexOf(age.charAt(i)) == -1) {
               tbAge.SetIsValid(false);
               break;
          }
     }
     if (tbAge.GetIsValid() && age.charAt(0) == '0') {
          age = age.replace(/^0+/, "");
          if (age.length == 0)
               age = "0";
          tbAge.SetText(age);

     }
     if (age < 18) {
          tbAge.SetIsValid(false);
          tbAge.SetErrorText('Age must be greater than or equal 18');
     }
}
