Re: RequiredFieldValidator doesn't show error message and missing __postback function
From what you have described, the system doesn't think Client-side
validation needs to be setup for the submit button.

There are two possibilities
1. The button has CausesValidation=false. This omits the call to
Page_ClientValidate() and thus prevents client-side validation.
2. The page thinks the browser isn't IE. The ClientTarget on the page may
not be blank. It may reflect something like "Downlevel". Client-side
validation requires detection of IE.
