XForm & TranslatedValidationSummary



I have migrated site from Episerver CMS 4.61 to 5 R2 SP2. 

The pages with XForm give me parse exception - Unknown server tag 'EPiServer:TranslatedValidationSummary'.

I have replaced <EPiServer:TranslatedValidationSummary Runat="server" /> with <asp:ValidationSummary runat="server" /> (according to example from public templates for CMS 5) in the XForm.ascx. At the moment pages are loading normally. But validation summary does not appear if validation errors exist. What is wrong? What should be done to make validation summary working correct?

Thanks in advance, Vladimir

You're probably missing the  ValidationSummary's ValidationGroup property. Usually this is set to XForm.

<asp:ValidationSummary ID="XFormValidationSummary" runat="server" ValidationGroup="XForm" />

Hope this helps

Thank you, Frederik.

But the reason of my trouble was another. It was wrong action type specified ('Send e-mail' instead of 'Save to database') for submit button in the form properties. That's why validation did not work.
