Control can also run user defined validation types. Control also has built in range validation, bad word filter, required validator and comparison validator.

Version:

1.0 - Final version.

How to use

Compile code into a .NET DLL assembly and put into your website home (bin) folder. Then add the following code to your ASP.NET webpage:
