Hello,

 

I am having an issue with the required field validator control when validating any of my RadAutoCompleteBox controls.  After I type in some text and then select the entry from the pop up list, the validator fires and comes back as false showing the error message I put in there that the field is required.

 

So I have two questions:

 

  1. Why is the validator coming back as false when I clearly selected an entry and the field is not blank?
  2. Why does the validator for this control keep firing prior to me hitting the button for submitting the form?

Thanks,
Ron

Update:

I was able to get the validation to work smoother using a CustomValidator instead of the RequiredFieldValidator.  Although I would like to still get the RequiredFieldValidator working so I do not need to use any custom scripting.

Hi Ron,

With reference to this forum thread, this is a known issue and Telerik Developers are working on this.

Thanks,

Shinu,

Thanks for pointing that post out to me. I guess in the meantime I will just go ahead and continue with using the CustomValidator as it is working perfectly right now and doing what I want.

Thanks,
Ron
