We can perform all the necessary validation like required field, type checking, range checking etc using Ajax. Below is a small snippet which shows how to use a required field validator. We have numbered the code snippet to understand the code more proper.
- 1 -> We have defined a text box ‘TextBox1’ which will be validated for required field.
- 2 -> We have defined a simple ‘<span>’ HTML tag which will display the error message.
- 3, 4 and 5 -> We use the XML declarative Ajax script to define that ‘TextBox1’ has validators and it’s a required field validator. To define the required field validator we need the ‘RequiredFieldValidator’ controls inside the validators.
- 6 -> We then define where the error should be displayed using the ‘ValidationErrorLabel’. In this case we will be displaying error in the span ‘Validator1’ which was defined previously.

Note: - The above sample shows a sample for 'requiredFieldValidator' , but we can also use other validators like rangeValidator, typeValidator, rangeValidator and regexValidator. As this is a interview book we will not be getting in to details of the other validators, please feel free to practice some sample for the same.
