I'm using JQuery plugin that operates on name attributes of form elements. I know that I can access id attribute value by using:

"<%= myControl.ClientID %>"

What about name attribute? In html source I see that name & id differ from each other.

Full code:

            $("form").validate({

            rules: {

                "<%= _FullNameTextbox.ClientID %>": {

                    required: true,

                    minlength: 2

                },

                "<%= _EmailAddressTextbox.ClientID %>": {

                    required: true,

                    email: true

                }

            },

            messages: {

                "<%= _FullNameTextbox.ClientID %>": {

                    required: "Please enter your full name",

                    minlength: "Your name must consist of at least two characters"

                },

                "<%= _EmailAddressTextbox.ClientID %>": {

                    required: "Please enter a valid email address",

                    email: "Please enter a valid email address"

                }

            }

        });

It worked fine when control was on Page. But now, when I placed it inside user control, id and name differ:

<input type="text" id="Container__EmailAddressTextbox" name="Container$_EmailAddressTextbox" class="error">

So instead of using _FullNameTextbox.ClientID I have to access name attribute value

    Re: Form's input element name in ASP .NET

    Hi Ankita, 


    The UniqueID property of your control will be used as its client-side name attribute, so you can write:

    "<%= myControl.UniqueID %>"
