This class categorizes controls as follows:

  • Internally-managed controls and delegate-managed controls. These controls are registered with a validation rule or evaluation delegate. The ControlsValidator object internally determines the error state of this type of control by evaluating the associated rule or invoking the delegate.

  • Externally-managed controls. These controls are not registered and have no corresponding validation rules. An external application can set and reset the error state of this type of control manually.
