Hi rajiv7577,

Please refer below sample.


    <asp:TextBox ID="txtDateTime" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
    <asp:CompareValidator ID="cvDateTime" runat="server" Operator="Equal" ControlToValidate="txtDateTime"
        ErrorMessage="Not valid" Type="Date"></asp:CompareValidator>



protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    cvDateTime.ValueToCompare = DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString();


Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    cvDateTime.ValueToCompare = DateTime.Now.ToString("MM/dd/yyyy")
End Sub

Hi rajiv7577,

You are trying to compare DateTime. The CompareValidator do not support DateTime. The Date Type is only for dates, not times.

You cannot use the CompareValidator.

You have to write a CustomValidator that can interpret the values of the dates.

Refer below link.
