How to use ASP.NET validator control with example

ASP.NET validator are controls used for validating the data entered in an input control , such as the textbox of a Web page.When a user enters invalid data in an associated control, the ASP.NET validator  control displays an error message on the screen. The error message is defined as a property value of the validation control . The data being entered is validated each time it is entered by the user , and the error message disappears only when the data is valid. Validation controls help save time and enhance the efficiency of the application by validating the data before a request is sent to the server.
The BaseValidator class
The System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseValidator class provides basic implementation required for all validation controls.

Public Properties of the BaseValidator Class

ControlToValidate : Handles an input control, such as the TextBox Control , which needs to be validated.

Display : Handles the behavior of the error message in a validation control.

EnableClientScript : Handles a value indicating whether or not client-side validation is enabled

Enabled : Handles a value that indicates whether or not the validation control is enabled or not.

ErrorMessage : Handles the text for the error message displayed in a ValidationSummary control when validation fails.

ForeColor : Handles the color of the messgage displayed when validation fails.

IsValid : Handles a value that indicates if the focus is set on the control or not , specified by the ControlToValidate property when validation fails.

Text : Handles the text displayed in the validation control when the validation fails.

ValidationGroup : Handles the name of the validation group to which this validation control belongs.

Note: ValidationGroup property , when set, validates only the validation controls within the specified group when the control is posted back to the server.

Public Methods of the BaseValidator Class

validate() : Helps in performing validation on the associated input control and update the IsValid property

GetValidationProperty : Help in determining the validation property of a control , if it exists.

The following ASP.NET validator controls are

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
