VAB defaultRule error

Topics: Validation Application Block
Jan 17, 2008 at 7:27 PM
I've created my first application with Validation Application Blocks. I am trying to use both attribute and config file validation to see how it works. I have put Validation with attributes inside my class. but when I try to run

Validateresults results = Validation.Validate(PlanRecord);

I get this error: Unrecognized attribute 'defaultRule'. Note that attribute names are case-sensitive.

However, if I use

Validateresults results = Validation.ValidateFromAttribute(PlanRecord); it works... What am I missing here with the Validate method? I didn't think I had to specify a defaultRule somewhere.
