Validation Block - Error Provider Refocusing

Topics: Validation Application Block

Hi Guys,

I'm using the validation block (4.1) + ErrorProvider and have them integrated with my WinForms app properly, however, i can't find the setting that enables re-focusing on validation fail. i.e. when validation fails you can't currently move to the next control, and i'd like to move, but display the error icon.

I'd like to test all my validation on a submit click, rather than on a per control basis, but display the validation results next to the appropriate controls.

Any idea how to do this?

Change the value of the AutoValidate property of you form containing your Error provider to "EnableAllowFocusChange".

Wow, that simple.

I really feel like a plank now. :(
