Start Datetimepicker validating event

Datetimepicker validating event

Use this event to provide custom validation for any input control, such as a Text Box. In other words, the validating control will retain the focus until the user provides the correct format, even if the user clicks another control such as a button or textbox.

Problem is when I select a date from the datapicker, On Text Changed event or validations do not fire as it does when I type values in the textboxes or select it from a calendar control and tab out. you could just use the masked input pluggin and not even worry about client side validation since it enforces it for you. I neither got an error regarding vals, nor an empty on Select function worked for me.

Causes Validation attribute supposed to help out but didn't. control.datepicker().mask('99/99/9999'); see: Thanks, did not know that but I need to have the validators incase javascript is disabled. I am not worried about the validators as much since I don't let the user enter data without validation. When I took them out, On Text Changed event fired as expected after the postback. If I understand correctly, empty on Select function prevents the validators from being triggered via preventing the change event from being fired.

Typically you will be validating text that is provided by a Text Box, but it could also come from a Combo Box where the user can type their selection.

As for validating the text, it can range from simply ensuring there is value (i.e., not an empty string) or more complex task such as validating the format of an email address. Once you have written a validation function for a specific format, convert it into a snippet, so the next time you need to validate similar data, you will save time by simply inserting your snippet.

Hi, I have two textboxes which are start and end date fields.

I want to change the calendar control that I display to j Query UI's datepicker.

Use this event to handle any needed upkeep after successfully validating the control.

Note: If the Validation was canceled in the Validating Event, then this event will not be called.

There is no need to validate a control that loses focus when the user wishes to cancel out of the form; therefore, the button’s Causes Validation property can be set to false.

As it turns out, validating controls depends on what type of control and the format of the data you wish to validate.

But I desperately need to figure out a way to fire the on Text Changed event when user selects a date from the datapicker. Last three explanations on the bug log was helpful for me.
