Use RequireFieldValidator with TinyMCE editor in ASP.Net


The RequiredFieldValidator control will not work correctly when we use it with TinyMCE editor. This is due to the fact that the TinyMCE edior api will call a method called  tinyMCE.triggerSave during the form submit action to post back the entered text back to textarea from the editor instance. Read the documentation to know more about the method.


Hence, to make the RequiredFieldValidator to work call the triggerSave method for the Button click that is causing the postback.


Refer the code below,
<form id="form1" runat="server">
    <B>Rich Text Editor</B>
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" TextMode="MultiLine" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator1" runat="server"
        ControlToValidate="TextBox1" ErrorMessage="*" ></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Save" OnClientClick="tinyMCE.triggerSave(false,true);" onclick="Button1_Click" />
