- Comparing Values: The CompareValidator Control
- Checking for a Range of Values: The RangeValidator Control
- Summarizing Errors: The ValidationSummary Control
- Performing Custom Validation: The CustomValidator Control

This chapter covered all the ASP.NET validation controls. You learned how to make required form fields by using the RequiredFieldValidator control, how to perform complex pattern validation by using the RegularExpressionValidator control, how to compare values and data types by using the CompareValidator control, and how to check for a range of values by using the RangeValidator control.
You also learned how to summarize validation errors by using the ValidationSummary control. You learned how to summarize errors within the page itself and how to display the summary in a pop-up dialog box.
Finally, you learned how to implement custom server-side and client-side validation functions by using the CustomValidator control. You should now be ready to handle any conceivable Web site validation task.
