I have a masked edit text box with a mask of ###-###-####. I want to make this field required, what do I put in the initial value of the required field validator to know that the field has not been filled in?

Hi Melissa,

The InitialValue should be exactly what you see there " - - " (replacing # with spaces). The RequiredFiedlsValidator ignores leading and trailing spaces, so you can ignore them too.

I had tried that and it didn't work. Here is the code that I have.

< s s w:MaskedEditTextBox ID="PhoneTextBox" Mask="###-###-####" Value='<%# Bind("Phone") %>' runat="server" Width="80px" />

< a s p:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator8" InitialValue=" - - " runat="server" ErrorMessage="Phone is Required" ControlToValidate="PhoneTextBox">*

I have also tried an initial value of "- -", " - - ", and many other variations to no avail.

Hi Melissa,


The RequiredFiedlsValidator cannot ignore the space between the literals.

I have attached a sample as per your requirement.
