How to validate textbox to only numbers in ASP.NET?

You can validate numbers by using Regular Expressions in ASP.NET by doing the following steps:

  1. In your Project, Add RegularExpressionValidator, you can add it through Toolbox.
  2. Click on RegularExpressionValidator, then click F4 to open properties.
  3. In the properties, find ValidationExpreesion property write the following Expression ^\d+$, as the below image
  4. Write your ValidationGroup you want for me : OnlyNumbers, as the below image
  5. Don't forget to set the ControlToValidate to your TextBox ID, in our case it's "txt_Numbers"

6. write your ErrorMessage you want to display, for me: Enter only numbers!

The RegularExpressionValidator should be like that:

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="ValidatNumbers" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txt_Numbers"
ErrorMessage="write only numbers" ValidationExpression="^\d+$" 
ValidationGroup="OnlyNumbers"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>
  1. Add your ValidationGroup To your textbox and your button, as the image below:

Finally the output for your textbox, button and RegularExpressionValidator:

 <asp:TextBox ID="txt_Numbers" runat="server" ValidationGroup="OnlyNumbers"></asp:TextBox>

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="ValidatNumbers" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txt_Numbers"
    ErrorMessage="write only numbers" ValidationExpression="^\d+$" 
    ValidationGroup="OnlyNumbers"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

<asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" Text="Submit" runat="server" ValidationGroup="OnlyNumbers" />
If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
