ToolBar - Validation Groups

  • About this demo
  • C#
  • VB

You can assign a group name to a set of validators to ensure that validation occurs only for controls in the specified group. This enables you to have multiple separately-validated forms on a single page.

RadToolBar provides the ability to specify validation-related properties per button item (RadToolBarButton or RadToolBarSplitButton). If these not set, validation properties of the RadToolBar control itself are taken into account. You can use the ValidationGroup property when you want to perform separate validation tasks on the same page.

By default, all validators are in the "" group (the default group) for backward compatibility.
