1) How can you validate a textbox to look exactly as they do when using the input manager?
This doesn't give me the same look that the input manager does:
I want them to look exactly like the inputmanager:
The input manager displays the icon and the message in red INSIDE the control, the validator does not.
I cant use an input manager for some of the fields because they are only required based on user input. I tried adding an entire new input manager for these fields, but then they always try to get validated - even when hidden. And I don't want to do a postback - I don't think I can enable and disable the input managers client-side.
