  • 1. Set text to a texbox control with a Textmode = password
    Here's a little workaround. Since the ASP.NET server control doesn't want to add/display the value in a password textbox, you have to add it yourself using an attribute. TextBox1 is a password textbox. Private Sub Page_Load _ (ByVal sender As System.Object, _ ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _ Handles MyBase.Load TextBox1.Attributes.Add("value", "thePassword") End Sub <asp:textbox id="TextBox1" runat="server" textmode="Password"></asp:textbox></p> Does this help? Ken MVP [ASP.NET] "Julio Delgado" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news:%23KTU% XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... Hi: I am getting information from a database and populating some textboxes, one of the texboxes is set to texmode of password. The problem is : I am trying to set a value to a Textbox with a Textmode set to password but I am having no luck. What is weird about this is that the field shows empty, the len is 0 and but if I set the value of the a regular textbox to the value of the password that data shows up. Thanks
  • 2. Multi-line textbox control - Carriage return?
    I am building up an address in a textbox control using c#. I have set the textmode to multiline, and currently I just add addlinee1 + " " + addline2 etc., but would like to format the address lines correctly by adding a carriage return in between the lines. Does anybody know what I would add between the lines using c# so that all the lines are in the same textbox, but appear on different lines? Thanks, Mike.
  • 3. Image Button inside a template column - Handling The Click Event - Solution!
    Through much searching. I found the solution. It was not as clearing spelled out either. One event that does always fire is the datagrid DataBinding event. 1. Inside the databinding event. You have to call EnsureChildControls method. Ex. Private Sub datagrid1_DataBinding(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles dgItems.DataBinding EnsureChildControls() End Sub 2. In the Page_Load of your web form this is where you call your public method to bind the data to your datagrid. In your control create a method that just creates the dataset, sets it to the datasource of the grid and then binds it. Ex. Public Sub BindDataGrid() Dim sqlconn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection() sqlconn.ConnectionString = "data source=" sqlconn.Open() strsql = "select * from google" Dim sqlCommand As New SqlClient.SqlCommand(strsql, sqlconn) sqlCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text Dim rcpDA As SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter = New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter() rcpDA.SelectCommand = sqlCommand Dim RcpDS As DataSet = New DataSet() rcpDA.Fill(RcpDS, "Searches") datagrid1.DataSource = RcpDS.Tables("Searches") datagrid1.DataBind() End Sub Call this from the Page_Load of the webform. All your events should fire now. Hope this helps. Sorry I cannot give a technical explaination for this but maybe someone will reply with one.

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
