Solution 1

You need to pass the ID of the control as a parameter of your javascript function.

For reference, see the code below.

Your Javascript file abc.js contains following

function abc(txtID) {

HTML page contains,

        <script src="abc.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <asp:textbox id="txtInput" runat="server" ></asp:textbox>
        <asp:button id="btn2" runat="server" text="Click Me" />

Then on your server side page load event

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            btn2.Attributes.Add("onclick", "abc('" + txtInput.ClientID + "')");

That's it, You are done.
