  • 1. setting focus ahead in a repeater
    Using textboxes and a repeater, I have a grid of entry cells (line items by days). I set the tab index when I load and tabbing works fine. I use the onkeydown event to trap for arrow keys (37, 38, 39, 40) and am able to reset focus to the next cell, right, left, or down. However, I cannot set focus to a cell in a higher row number, even though I am building my string for the getElementByID the exact same way. I get a null reference to any textbox in a higher row. Is there some gotcha here that I don't know about yet? Can anyone help? Please! -- Thanks, CGW

  • 3. Recommended way to add child controls in CreateChildControls
    Hi all, What is the recommended way to add child controls *around* existing child controls in the CreateChildControls method (e.g. table, row and cell controls for layout purposes)? Is the best way to keep a reference to the existing child controls, clear the Controls collection and then re-add everything along with the layout controls, or insert the layout controls around the existing controls in the existing Controls collection? 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,

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
