Nội dung Text: Validate Data Using Validation Controls

  1. 5.2 Validate Data Using Validation Controls I want to be able to validate various types of data entry without having to wait for an error to come back from the server. Can I validate my data on my Web Form? Note A note of caution: Through the writing and tech editing of this chapter, there have been some inconsistencies noted in the reaction of some of the validator controls. The tech editor and I both contend that this area might have some .NET bugs. This is also the reason for the lack of coverage in the CustomValidator. Technique One new feature found in ASP.NET is the inclusion of Validation Web server controls. These validation controls allow you to specify other controls of which you want to validate based on data entered into the controls. You can then do the following: • Have the Validation control display an error message. • Test at a page level to see if all controls that are being validated are valid. • Display a list of error messages for all the controls that are being validated. Available Validation Web Server Controls You will find the controls for validation in the toolbox, and can see them listed in Table 5.2, with a description of what they validate. Table 5.2. Validation Web Server Controls Control Description RequiredFieldValidator Validates whether the specified control has been left blank. CompareValidator Compares the values in two controls and validates whether they are equal. RangeValidator Checks to see if the value entered into a control falls within a range that is specified. RegularExpressionValidator Compares a value entered into a control to see if it matches an entered mask, such as 999-99-9999, which is the U.S. Social Security Number.
  2. CustomValidator Allows you to create custom functions on both the client and server side for validation. ValidationSummary Used to consolidate the messages that all validation controls return on a page into a list-like format. The main properties you will set on a validation control are FieldToValidate and ErrorMessage. Note The CustomValidator control is different in that you will create functions to perform the validation. Other than these, the validation controls require no coding unless you want to validate the whole page. Testing Page Validation in Code Depending on what is required, you can test for validation at the page level using the Page.Validate method. When you call this method, all the Validation controls are retested, and the Page.IsValid property is set. You can use the IsValid property in a condition statement to perform tasks based on the value of the IsValid property, as shown in the last step of this How-To. Steps Open and run the Visual Basic .NET-Chapter 5 solution. From the main page, click on the hyperlink with the caption How-To 5.2: Validate Data Using Validation Controls. When the Web Form loads, you will see a number of text boxes with instructions on how to see the various validation checks. Here is the Web Form in Design view (see Figure 5.2). 1. Create a Web Form. Then place the controls listed in Table 5.3 and shown in Figure 5.2 with the following properties set. Table 5.3. Control Property Settings for Validation Controls Web Form Object Property Setting Label Text Required Field Validator
  3. Example (Leave Blank to Test) TextBox ID txtRequiredExample Label Text Compare Validator Example (Enter Two Different Values in These Text Boxes) TextBox ID txtCompareFirst TextBox ID txtCompareSecond Label Text Range Validator Example (Enter a Number Outside the Range 1 and 10) TextBox ID txtRangeExample Label Text Regular Expression Validator Example (Enter a SSN not matching 999-99- 9999) TextBox ID txtRegularExprExample Label Text Custom Validator Example (Enter a State Other Than WA or CA) TextBox ID txtCustomExample Button ID btnTestValidators Text Test Validators Label Text Page Validation Errors RequiredFieldValidator ToValidate txtRequiredExample Control ErrorMessage Here is the message for the Required Field Validator CompareValidator ControlToCompare txtCompareFirst
  4. ControlToValidate txtCompareSecond ErrorMessage Here is the message for the Compare Validator RangeValidator ControlToValidate txtRangeExample MaximumValue 10 MinimumValue 1 ErrorMessage Here is the message for the Range Validator RegularExpressionValidator ControlToValidate txtRegularExprExample ValidationExpression \d{3}-\d{2}-\d{4} ErrorMessage Here is the message for the Regular Expression Validator ValidationSummary HeaderText Error Summary List HyperLink ID hplReturnToMain NavigateURL wfrmMain.aspx 2. Note For the ValidationExpression property of the RegularExpressionValidator, you will want to click the builder button beside the property and choose the SSN from the list of expressions. 3. Add the code in Listing 5.4 to the Click event of btnTestValidator. You can see an example here of how you might use the Validate method for the page, and act based on when the IsValid property is set. Listing 5.4 wfrmHowTo5_2.aspx.vbs Testing to See If All Controls That the Validation Controls Handle Are Valid Private Sub btnTestValidators_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnTestValidators.Click
  5. '-- Forces the Validation controls to validate Page.Validate() If Page.IsValid Then '-- Code if all controls are valid Else '-- Code if even one of the controls isn't valid End If End Sub Figure 5.2. These controls aren't seen on your Web forms unless a validation error occurs. Comments
  6. You normally wouldn't have the ValidationSummary control on the same page if you were listing the individual error messages using the Validation controls. It is nice to be able to have all the errors show up in a list sometimes. Tip You can affect the way the list looks in the ValidationSummary control by setting the DisplayMode property. You have the choice of using a list, a bulleted list, or a paragraph. You can also display a message box instead of a list by setting the ShowMessageBox property to True and the ShowSummary property to False. Note You can display one message in the individual validation controls and another in the ValidationSummary control. The ErrorMessage property is reflected in the ValidationSummary list, whereas the Text property of the individual validation controls displays something different if it's set.
