Hey guys, we just shipped the Validation Bundle.

The guidance in this bundle is designed to help you streamline the end-user experience of your web applications by utilizing ASP.NET AJAX to invoke server-side validation. Additionally you will find guidance on how to improve maintainability of your applications by reusing domain object validations across multiple screens, applications and tiers. You’ll also find a set of guidelines on how to perform security validation in order to protect your sites from SQL Injection, Cross-Site scripting, etc. Like the Contextual Autocomplete Bundle, this guidance is applicable for both WCSF and standard ASP.NET non-WCSF based solutions.


What is in the bundle?



  • Validation QuickStart: source code to demonstrate how to improve UI responsiveness for validation and reuse of validation rules across pages.
  • Validation Application Block from Enterprise Library 3.1: Validation Application Block binary.
  • AJAXControlToolkit.WCSFExtensions.dll: Contains the ServerSideValidationExtender which invokes ASP.NET validators including the Enterprise Library PropertyProxyValidator via AJAX
  • Acceptance Tests: Manual tests that can be executed to walk you through the Quickstart functionality.
  • Documentation: Documentation explaining Validation Guidelines (Security, Schema, and so on) the Quickstart, and how to use the extender.

    I’d love to use this, it really makes the validation logic reusable.  However, I can’t get the AJAX validation to work at all in Firefox!    Is this a known bug?

    Great work!

    Any feedback on the issue with AJAX validation not working in Firefox? I agree with Travis, I would love to use this, but would like Firefox support as well. Thanks.

  12. Hi @Travis, @Paige and all you Firefox users out there.

    We’re working on this now. We should have some sort of fix out within the next few weeks. I will post here and in codeplex when it is available.

    Thanks
