Validation Failing in a Customized Registration Form Template

Hi All

I have added some validation to the default registration form template in the following way:

<sf:TextField ID="firstName" runat="server" DataFieldName="FirstName" DataItemType="Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.Model.SitefinityProfile" DisplayMode="Write" Title="<%$ Resources:Labels, FirstName %>" CssClass="sfregisterField sfregisterFirstName" WrapperTag="li">               

<validatordefinition  messagecssclass="sfError" required="true" />         


For some unknown reason, there is no validation happening for the above field when the form is submitted. The only validation happening is for email, username and password.

I later added validation group to each of the required fields in the form. Still no validation happening for the rest of the fields e.g. First name,  Last name etc..

 Any idea why this happening??

Hello Yosief,

If you for example have the following custom field and you want to validate it:

<sf:TextField ID="reTypeEmail" runat="server" DisplayMode="Write" Title="Retype Email" IsPasswordMode="true" CssClass="sfregisterField sfregisterConfirmPassword" WrapperTag="li">
              <ValidatorDefinition MessageCssClass="sfError">
                      <sfvalidation:ComparingValidatorDefinition ControlToCompare="email"
                          Operator="Equal" ValidationViolationMessage="Please enter the same email"/>

The default registration form control doesn't validate custom fields.You should override its ValidateInput() method of the control  to return true when your field is validated. You can see how this is done in the sample:
protected override bool ValidateInput()
            return base.ValidateInput() && this.ReTypeEmailField.IsValid();

To do that you should simply inherit from our Registration form and override the above method.

Hi Mansoor,
about the validateInput() method :
The method is inside the RegistrationForm control.

 Because of that you need to extend this control by creating your own custom MonsoorRegistrationForm : RegistrastionForm and override this method as Zheyna suggested.

Then you can go and replace the default control in the toolbox to be your instead of the sitefinity one.
Go to >> Administration >> Settings >> Advanced >> Toolboxes >> Toolboxes >> PageControls >> Sections >> Users >> Tools >> RegistrationWidget and change the value of CLR Type or Virtual Path field.

From now on every time you place an registration widget to a page or layout it will use your widget implementation and your validate method

I want to set a field as unique. Sitefinity by default does not have any provisions for doing that.  Eg:Username field. No two users must have same usernames. 
Can anyone tell how to achieve it efficiently. 
Thanks in Advance
