Hello, I have added a "CustomValidator" control in in code to a control <BR>which is already on the footer. I am running the validation for the <BR>control at the server.<BR><BR>My problem is that when the event fires, the "sender" being passed is the <BR>the "CustomValidator" control, and in order to validate the information, I <BR>really need access to the control that it is validating. The control it is <BR>validating is a DropDownList control and I want to ensure that the selected <BR>index is not -1. How to I access the controls of the footer in the event <BR>which is being fired by the CustomValidator at the server?<BR><BR>Thanks in advance for your assistance!!!!<BR><BR>
