ValidationSummary Main Features

The ValidationSummary extension allows you to summarize validation errors from multiple editors and then display these errors in a single block.


The ValidationSummary does not display errors added through the ModelState.AddModelError method when it gets a key that does not match the editor ID.

ValidationSummary provides the following features:

  • Three Render Modes

    Use the ValidationSummarySettings.RenderMode property to specify how the ValidationSummary's panel displays validation error texts:

    Appearance Affected Properties
  • Show Error Texts as Links

    Set the ValidationSummarySettings.ShowErrorAsLink property to true to show validation error texts as links. In this mode, click a link to move focus to a corresponding invalid editor.

  • Full-Featured Client-Side API

    The ASPxClientValidationSummary object is a client-side equivalent of the ValidationSummary extension and can be used to access its client-side API.
