    Hello, I have created a webusercontrol and am able to drag and drop it onto a webform (aspx page) successfully. However, if I drag and drop more than one instance of the webusercontrol on the same webform, i can't see both the instances when i run the application. Only one instance shows. Is there a way to create multiple instances of the same webusercontrol on a webform? Thanx.

  • 4. need help using customvalidator
    I picked up a really nifty function that allows me to count "words" in a string of text. CountWords() I'd like to use this function to validate some form fields. One field should have no more than 100 words, the other should have no more than 20. I can't think of a way to do this in ASP.NET <asp:customvalidator id="OurCustomValidator" ControlToValidate="OurTextBox" OnServerValidate="CountWords(20)" ErrorMessage="Error" runat="server" /> won't work, because I can't pass arguments to CountWords() in ASP.NET using this approach. If I wrote two functions, one that checked for 100 words, the other that checked for 20 (I know: totally bad practice) <asp:customvalidator id="OurCustomValidator" ControlToValidate="OurTextBox" OnServerValidate="CountWords1()" ErrorMessage="Error" runat="server" /> I couldn't do anything with the results. I must return Page.IsValid, not some random true/false value. <asp:comparevalidator id="validator2" ControlToValidate="CountWords(OurTextBox)" Operator="LessThanEqual" ControlToCompare="100" ErrorMessage="Error" runat="server" /> Can I even /do/ this (use my control as a function parameter)? If anyone knows of a way to do this (I could keep guessing up theories forever, please someone who /knows/) it would be much appreciated.

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,

4.get Textbox Value in datagrid using JavaScript

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
of textbox1 using Javascript? I am using onChange function for
textbox1. Is it doable? any example?

Thanks a lot
