does anybody know how to achieve requiredField validation in MVC.
I know Html.ValidationMessage() helper.
problem is i have a dropdown list with following items
out of these three 1st one is default. I want user to select value either Admin or Reports not the default one i.e. ---select---
as we do in webForms, we give InitialValue to asp:RequiredFieldValidator to achive such functionality. How to get it using Html.ValidationMessage
