Email verification query

Email verification query

Email verification query


Can I ask please about email verification in my ASP.NET (VB.NET) project.

I have a form with this in my contact form:


<p><asp:Label ID="Email" runat="server" Text="Email"></asp:Label>
<asp:TextBox ID="your_email" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></p><br />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator Display="Dynamic" ID="RequiredFieldValidator2" runat="server"
ErrorMessage="*" ControlToValidate="your_email" ForeColor="#FF6666"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="regexpEmail" runat="server" ErrorMessage="Please complete the Email field"
ValidationGroup="vgSubmit" ControlToValidate="your_email"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>


I am getting two green underlines under <ValidationExpression and </asp:ValidationExpression>

It says ValidationExpression is missing the > from the start tag and </asp:ValidationExpression> has no matching start tag.

Thanks for any help.

Hello Bovrik

Thank you.

It seems to be allowing this (I did this before your reply): does it look OK to you? I haven't precompiled it yet (I spent hours on it yesterday and do you know when you reach a certain limit, hehehehe).

CODE -->

<asp:Label ID="Email" runat="server" Text="Email"></asp:Label>
<asp:TextBox ID="your_email" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator2" runat="server"
ErrorMessage="*" ControlToValidate="your_email" ValidationGroup="vgSubmit" ForeColor="#FF6666"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator> 
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator2" runat="server" Display="Dynamic" ErrorMessage="Please complete the Email field" ValidationGroup="vgSubmit" ControlToValidate="your_email"
ValidationExpression="[a-z0-9!#$%&'*+/=?^_`{|}~-]+(?:\.[a-z0-9!#$%&'*+/=?^_`{|}~-]+)*@ (?:[a-z0-9](?:[a-z0-9-]*[a-z0-9])?\.)+[a-z0-9](?:[a-z0-9-]*[a-z0-9])?"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator> 

Thanks again.
