ASP.Net 4 ClientIDMode and Validators

by Ross on March 24, 2011 at 1:51 PM under .NET | ASP.Net

Just a quick note. ASP validators(like RequiredFieldValidator) do not work when validator's ClientIDMode is set to a value other than AutoID. This happens either by explicitly setting a value, or the validator inheriting it from a parent control. The only work around, so far, is to make sure your validator has AutoID set.
