How to fix the DetailsView data validation problem

Jugando con texturas (XIII): Resurrecciónphoto © 2010 Zyllan | more info ia: Wylio) The Problem: You have the standard DetailsView control (one of many on that page) and your custom validator refuses to work.  So do all of your standard validators now that you think about it.  Your command button looks like this:

<asp:ButtonField ButtonType="Button" ValidationGroup="Main" Text="Add This" CommandName="InsertNewRecord"  />
and all of your ValidationGroups are set to "Main"

The Cause: DetailsView is designed to work that  way, don’t ask me why

The Solution: Put everything in a regular button, like so:

<asp:Button runat="server" ID="btnAddNewAddress" ValidationGroup="Main" CommandName="InsertNewRecord"  Text="Add This"/>
That works, no idea why, but it does.
