    Hi Friends ,

    I am doing validation on textbox
    1) such as Do not allow to enter special character
    2) only allow character & int
    3) allow integer number only
    4) select date from datepicker only. do not allow to enter from keyboard.

    I am done using regex  as well as with code . it show me message for perticular validation but typed key show in textbox

    here is my code

     private void checkvalidation(string Datatype, string txtBoxValue,string txtBoxName)
                    switch (Datatype.ToString().ToLower())
                        case "system.string":
                            var StringRegexExp = new Regex("^[a-zA-Z0-9 -()@,.]*$");
                            if (!Regex.IsMatch(txtBoxValue, "^[a-zA-Z0-9 -()@,.]*$"))
                                MessageBox.Show("Please do not enter special character.", "Validation", MessageBoxButton.OK);
                                if (txtBoxValue.Length > 0)
                                    txtBoxValue.Remove(txtBoxValue.Length - 1);

                        case "system.int32":
                            var IntegexExp = new Regex("^[0-9]+$");
                            if (!Regex.IsMatch(txtBoxValue, "^[0-9]+$"))
                                MessageBox.Show("Please enter numeric values.", "Validation", MessageBoxButton.OK);

                        case "datePicker":
                            var DatepickerRegexExp = new Regex("^(0?[1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])[- /.](0?[1-9]|1[012])[- /.](19|20)[0-9][0-9]$");
                            if (!Regex.IsMatch(txtBoxValue, "^(0?[1-9]|[12][0-9]|3[01])[- /.](0?[1-9]|1[012])[- /.](19|20)[0-9][0-9]$"))
                                MessageBox.Show("Please select date from datepicker.", "Validation", MessageBoxButton.OK);

    Hi Laxman,

    I am not sure if I understand your scenario correctly but I believe that you can take advantage of the RadMaskedInput suite of controls. They support validation out-of-the-box. You can examine this demo for more info or take a look at the online documentation articles on data annotations validation and regex validation. Also, the RadMaskedInput controls expose a ValueChanging() event which can be handled thus preventing the user from entering improper data.

    Finally from you description I couldn't understand if you are using the RadDateTimePicker control and whether you have any issues with it, but if you do please elaborate on those. Thank you in advance.

    Best wishes,
