Customize the Default Error Message

This customization displays a custom validation error message by setting the ErrorMessage and Text properties of a Validator control. The ErrorMessage property of a Validator control is displayed in a pop-up window while the Text property is displayed at the location of the validator on the web page. This property is set at design time, but can be changed via the Property Sheet. To change it, you simply add or modify the pass-through attributes located in the Custom attributes in the Property Sheet.

You can only set the RequiredFieldValidator for a FieldValue control. Additional validation can be implemented by overriding the Validate() method in the RecordControl class.
