Text box to accept only number
   <SCRIPT language="Javascript">
      function isNumberKey(evt)
         var charCode = (evt.which) ? evt.which : event.keyCode
         if (charCode > 31 && (charCode < 48 || charCode > 57))
            return false;
         return true;
      <INPUT id="txtChar" onkeypress="return isNumberKey(event)" type="text" name="txtChar">
Just paste the Script Section in the Head section and in on key press call the function.
For C#, just paste the following code:
function allownumbers(e) {
        var key = window.event ? e.keyCode : e.which;
        var keychar = String.fromCharCode(key);
        var reg = new RegExp("[0-9.]")
        if (key == 8) {
            keychar = String.fromCharCode(key);

And in PageLoad:
txtNum.Attributes.Add("onkeypress", "javascript:return allownumbers(event);");

by small digits I mean something like:
1.2345, 6.78 etc
I once wrote such functions, but I wrote 3 separate functions, one for integers, one for small digits, one for negative small digits. Yet I believe that it would be much better to have all of them within one function.
