Comparing Values

Comparing Data

This one compares data in one field to another field or to a constant (or a Data Type). It has several options which I will cover now.

  • Instead of ControltoCompare you can use ValuetoCompare if you want to use a constant value.
  • Operators can be one of the following:
    • DataTypeCheck
    • Equal
    • GreaterThan
    • GreaterThanEqual
    • LessThan
    • LessThanEqual
    • NotEqual
  • The Type property can be one of the following:
    • Currency
    • Date
    • Double
    • String
    • Integer

Here is the example:

First Name:<asp:textbox id="FName2" runat="server" />Last Name: <asp:TextBox id="LName2" runat="server" /><p>

<asp:CompareValidator runat="Server" ControltoValidate="FName2" ControltoCompare="LName2" Type="String" Operator="NotEqual" ErrorMessage="Your First Name can't be your last name as well!" />

This makes sure that your first name isn't your last name (don't complain if your first name is also your last name, this is just an example!).
