I have 2 ddl control on the same line to collect the month and year. I need to validate that the month and year are required if one is specified. I could not find a way to do this except to creaet a custom validation, one for each control. I am displaying the error message on the same line as the 2 ddl. If the 1st custom validation has an error, the message displays nicely next to the ddl, but if the 2nd validation has an error, the message is way to the right because of the location of the 1st cust.val. My question is how do I get the message to move over? Is there another way to do what I need?
