Hi @Ranjith..

For more specifically you can use filtertextbox extender to restrict the other no to be entered.Or you can use javascript to check the values for the text boxes.

Hope this helps you.

The easiest would be to handle the keydown[^] event and only allow 12 to be entered.

Some other articles that might provide some insight -[^][^]

You can restrict the user to enter any characters other than numbers or any particular set of characters. Check out this article. it talks about a technique to so the similar thing.

A Tiny Javascript Framework for Common Validation Scenarios.[^]

it would be something like

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox7" runat="server" onkeypress="return AcceptRegExOnly(event, /^(1|2)$/);" MaxLength="2"></asp:TextBox>

using this framework. the only catch here is that 11 and 22 are also accepted but that can be circumvented by using a proper regex.
