validation controls not consistent - ASP.NET General

Hi, We make extensive use of validation controls on forms across our sites. For the most part they seem to work okay, but every now and again some data that should never have passed through the validators gets inserted into the database. We've tested and the validators always work for us when we input the same data ourselves. I suspect this has to do with certain browsers not being compatible with the javascript the controls produce.

    Default validation controls not consistent

    Hi,

    We make extensive use of validation controls on forms across our sites. For
    the most part they seem to work okay, but every now and again some data that
    should never have passed through the validators gets inserted into the
    database. We've tested and the validators always work for us when we input
    the same data ourselves. I suspect this has to do with certain browsers not
    being compatible with the javascript the controls produce. However,
    shouldn't the validator controls validate both client-side and server-side
    on a submit? Basically, are we going to have to have 2 sets of validation
    logic like in asp.old (client-side javascript and server-side code) to get
    the validation to work correctly?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Chris,

    Yes, the validators do validate both client and server side.

    But server side you need to check if they returned valid before executing
    any code that relys on them being valid:

    If Page.IsValid Then
    '---Execute code here
    End If

    Sincerely,
