I am trying to reuse an existing form. In it's present use there is one field that is otherwise required and it has a requiredFieldValidator. In the instance where I want to reuse it, this particular field is not needed. Is there a way at runtime to have this particular field not trigger the validator control upon submission? All code is vb.net

You can choose which fields it's intended to validate. This (http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/control_reqfieldvalidator.asp) should help you figure it out.

I am validating the textbox when the user is coming in directly from their admin section. However, when the user is redirected from another page, I do not show this particular textbox nor it's associated label. Now how do I stop the control from trying to validate the field that I don't want to show?
