i am using this regular expression to validate decimal point it works fine


but i want to add one more logic in it

if user type 0.30 it says invalid i want it to be valid but if user type 00.3 this should be invalid i guess in below expression if make it this so this will be good 0.30 but i want to add one more logic that if usre type 00.30 means in start 2 zero is invalid how to do that

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="RegularExpressionValidator4" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtofferrate" CssClass="validation" Display="Dynamic" ErrorMessage="Valid Decimal Point Required" ValidationExpression="^[1-9]\d*(\.\d+)?$" ></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

Hi nauna,

With RegularExpressionValidator it is not possible. For this you need to use CustomValidator and write your own logic.

Check this example. Now please take its reference and correct your code.


<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtofferrate" />
<asp:CustomValidator ID="CustomValidator1" runat="server" ClientValidationFunction="Validate"
    CssClass="validation" Display="Dynamic" ControlToValidate="txtofferrate" ErrorMessage="" ForeColor="Red" />


<script type="text/javascript">
    function Validate(sender, args) {
        var offerRate = document.getElementById(sender.controltovalidate).value;
        var regex = /^[0-9]\d*(\.\d+)?$/;
        if (regex.test(offerRate)) {
            if (offerRate.split('.').length > 1) {
                var value = offerRate.split('.')[0];
                if (parseInt(value) == 0) {
                    if (value.length > 1) {
                        sender.innerHTML = "Valid Decimal Point Required."
                        args.IsValid = false;
            else {
                args.IsValid = true;
        } else {
            sender.innerHTML = "Valid Decimal Point Required."
            args.IsValid = false;
