    Since you do not want Validation, why not remove or comment all Validators.
    The alternative could be change property on Code Behind, but it will take some work anyway

    Hi yzidell,

    Button.CausesValidation: By default, page validation is performed when a Button control is clicked. Page validation determines whether the input controls associated with a validation control on the page all pass the validation rules specified by the validation control.

    To prevent validation from being performed, set the CausesValidation property to false.

    how would i turn off CausesValidation for all buttons on a web page?

    You can try to find all buttons on a page and set the CausesValidation property to false.

                    List<Button> allControls = new List<Button>();
                    GetControlList<Button>(Page.Controls, allControls);
                    foreach (var childControl in allControls)
                        childControl.CausesValidation = false;
                        //     call for all controls of the page
         private void GetControlList<T>(ControlCollection controlCollection, List<T> resultCollection)
    where T : Control
                foreach (Control control in controlCollection)
                    //if (control.GetType() == typeof(T))
                    if (control is T) // This is cleaner
                    if (control.HasControls())
                        GetControlList(control.Controls, resultCollection);

    Best Regards,
