Have tried using Enterprise Library: validation Block within my ASP.NET app and got disappointed with the Hands on labs provided at MSDN 

The tutorial provided with the Lab 12 in PDF version is absolutely useless. It is a long process by adding dll to Tool bar and then binding it to the TextBox is quite similar to ASP.NET Validation controls. Still it requires to have a Domain Class etc.

  • Client site validation not possible using Validation Application Block

I like to request for a good Tutorial / Video that explains best utilisation of this block.

your input and help appreciated.

The tutorials that was included in the Hands on labs is the most common that can be done with the Validation Application Block. I tried to find other uses of the VAB that was not included in the Hands on labs. Have a look. - video version of integration
