Validating biz object property without using attribute

Topics: Validation Application Block
Feb 20, 2008 at 1:57 AM
Imagine a scenario where i don't have access to source code of the biz object but at the same time i want to validate the properties of biz object. How can I achieve this as I cannot use validation attribute such as StringLengthValidator available in validation application block on the property?

Basically, i want to validate the property without using attribute but with the validators available in validation application block.

Please help me!

You should use validation by configuration. Use the config tool that ships with the enterprise library to configure your validation rules.

Add a validation section. Add the types to be validated using by choosing the appropriate .NET assembly and you are good to go. You now have access to all built in validators.
