Solution 1

ASP.Net validation controls are server side controls, meaning you can set values on them in C# code. However, the actual validation takes place on the client side.

Some people use JavaScript because it gives you more flexibility. It just all depends on what you want to do. There is no right or wrong way to do it.

However, even though you validate client side you should still always validate server side because client side can be manipulated by the user.

Validation controls are server side as you know we use runat = "server" but it's perform validation at client side.
