  • 1. Handling the return key in a textbox
    Hallo Everyone, I have an ASPX page with a textbox. If a user enters return I would like the form to be posted or a specific button to be activated. Any ideas? I was thinking about using the autopostback function but this would mean every keystroke in this textbox would cause a round trip to the server.. Nigel...
  • 2. Properties loosing their values, and TagPrefix
    Hi I have a couple of problems that I've been unable to solve, so I'm asking once more for help. The properties that I've added to my own control are being reset just before the application launches. I've added an InnerHtml property like this: [Bindable(true), Category("Appearance")] public string InnerHtml { get { object o = ViewState["InnerHtml"]; if( o!=null ) return o.ToString(); else return ""; } set { ViewState["InnerHtml"] = value; } } Trouble is, as I say, any values I added to this in the designer are immediately set to blank immediately before the application launches in debug mode. Anyone have any idea why this might be? Secondly, the TagPrefix I'm setting up is not being used on my pages, but the default cc1 is being used. My class is called XhtmlControl, and in the AssemblyInfo.cs of my control assembly I have: [assembly: TagPrefix("XhtmlControl", "Refresh")] I've tried rebuilding and resetting the toolbox, but still it gets ignored. Any ideas why? Incidentally, when adding controls to the toolbox, do we add the .dll from the obj or the bin folder? Cheers, Mark
  • 3. Error trying to set focus
    Hi, I'm trying to use Page_Load to set focus to a textbox1 and I get the following error: "Object Doesn't Support This Property or Method". Here is my VB code behind: Dim scriptString As New System.Text.StringBuilder() scriptString.Append("<script Language='javascript'>") scriptString.Append("document.getElementByID ('TextBox1').focus();") scriptString.Append("</script>") Me.RegisterStartupScript("setFocus",scriptString.ToString) I tested a few things: 1. Rename 'TextBox1' to 'ABC' (garbage string) and I get the same error. This tells me that I may actually have a code behind syntax error, but it isn't reported as such. 2. I tried other variations where I used ampersand and Chr (34) to encapsulate 'TextBox1', and it did not recognize the ampersand (or the + sign) as characters that it could use with a string. (?? This is very different than VB6 Windows apps.) Any ideas what I might try besides running a script right out of the ASP.NET? That does work, but I would like to learn more about why this code behind is failing. Thanks, Paul

try this:
set the "OnChange" attribute for your server side control 
to your js function in the onload event of your page's

1.JavaScript for OnTextChanged event.


I have created a web-based file manager. Now I'd like to watch a folder for 
changes, and when a change occurs I'd like to refresh my page.
Okay. So I have created a FileSystemWatcher set on the folder I need to 
watch. It works fine. The problem occurs when I need to trigger an automatic 
So I added two handlers - OnChanged and OnRename, in the same class as my 

In the handlers I tried to say Response.redirect(mypage) to force the 
refresh, but the error I got was: "Cannot redirect after HTTP headers have 
been sent."

So I tried to change the text of some textbox instead
<asp:textbox id="txtFileSystemWatcher" 
OnTextChanged="javascript:RefreshPage();" Visible=true  Width=500 

with this handler:
Private Sub OnChanged(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As 
    txtFileSystemWatcher.Text = "FileSystemWatcher: " & "File: " & 
e.FullPath & " " & e.ChangeType
End Sub

and add an OnTextChanged client-side event-handler which looks like this:

function RefreshPage() {
    __doPostBack('txtFileSystemWatcher', '');

which would force the refresh. However, now I have the following error:
BC30456: 'javascript' is not a member of 'ASP.BrowseFiles_aspx'.

So I changed the HTML to
<asp:textbox id="txtFileSystemWatcher" OnTextChanged="RefreshPage()" 
Visible=true  Width=500 Runat=server></asp:textbox>
and now, sure enough, I get
BC30456: 'RefreshPage' is not a member of 'ASP.BrowseFiles_aspx'.

I also tried in OnLoad of the page to register the event with
txtFileSystemWatcher.Attributes.Add("OnTextChanged", "RefreshPage()")

but it still does not work.

What am I missing here, please ?

Thank you, Alex 

2.Accessing Textbox inside a Template column using javascript

I am having a datagrid with a template column. Inside the template column I
have a textbox and an image button. On click of the image button, I want to
call a javascript function, where the textbox value has to be taken.

Since the textbox is inside the datagrid, how can I access the Textbox in a
javascript function?

what is happening now is that if I give document.frmname.textboxname then it
won't recognise because for textboxes in each row of the datagrid is
internally given a different name.

can you please assist me regarding this?

Thanks & Regards,

Hi, All:

I have a datagrid that embedded 3 textbox using TemplateColumn. When
the user key in value in the first textbox, I need to check to see if
this value is between the the values in other 2 textboxes. I know I can
postback to server side and using datagrid findcontrol to get values of
these 3 textboxes and compare them. But it kind of combersome cause
every change in textbox 1 I need send back to server.

My question is how can I get other 2 textboxes values in the same row

textbox1. Is it doable? any example?
