Limiting Allowable Values

RadTextBox can be used with RegularExpressionValidator to validate the input for a specific format.

The following example shows how to use this approach to use RadTextBox for entering Email addresses:

<telerik:RadTextBox ID="RadTextBox1" runat="server">
    </telerik:RadTextBox>
    <asp:RegularExpressionValidator
    id="emailValidator"
    runat="server"
    Display="Dynamic"
    ErrorMessage="Please, enter valid e-mail address."
    ValidationExpression="^[\w\.\-]+@[a-zA-Z0-9\-]+(\.[a-zA-Z0-9\-]{1,})*(\.[a-zA-Z]{2,3}){1,2}$"
    ControlToValidate="RadTextBox1">
</asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
<br/>
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click" Text="Submit" />

When the user clicks the Submit button, the text box is validated and the error message is displayed if the entered text does not match the email format.
