how to multiply value of two textboxs into the third text box at runtime

try to specify maximum things in question like you are doing this in web application and you want to do this without postback etc.

Taken this is WinForms: For example with decimal values use Decimal.Parse Method[^]. For example:
textBox3.Text = (Decimal.Parse(textBox1.Text) * Decimal.Parse(textBox2.Text)).ToString();

Of course you need to add checks, use try catch, possibly use TryParse instead and so on.

You can put the code where anywhere you like. For example you can use the text boxes Validating event, KeyUp, KeyDown etc, whatever is feasible.

i mean to say that as i write the value in textboxes the multiply should automaticaly came third column .

Did you read the addition I wrote, use a feasible event and drop the code into it.

OP said: i want it without pressing any thing
To do this without postback you should use javascript--
function updateValue()
  var val1=document.getElementByID("<%=textbox1.ClientID%>").value;
  var val2=document.getElementByID("<%=textbox2.ClientID%>").value;

now you can call this at any javascript event of your need i am calling this at blur-

write this on pageload

How to use same concept in Repeater Control
To update the textbox when the user changes the other ones, you just need to copy the code provided by Mika and paste it into a TextChanged event handler:

public YourForm()
   //add the handler for the two input boxes
   textBox1.TextChanged += textbox_TextChanged;
   textBox2.TextChanged += textbox_TextChanged;

private void textBox_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
       textBox3.Text = (Decimal.Parse(textBox1.Text) * Decimal.Parse(textBox2.Text)).ToString();
       //an error occured...

using TextChanged event will cause to postback the page, i think javascript is solution for achiving this without postback(OP says in comment for solution1 that he want it with out postback)
