Hello all,
I have a gridview with textbox template field where I insert Marks of students, now I want to validate the textbox (checking full marks of particular paper),here I need to pass the value of textbox to javascript so that I can validate textbox on onkeypress event of textbox how i can do so..

Or Is there any best alternative..

Hi Gopal,

Try the below code

var grid = document.getElementById("<%= GridName.ClientID %>");
for (var i=0; i<grid.rows.length; i++){
var row = grid.Rows.getRow(i);
var ActivityTypeCell = row.getCell(10);
var ActivityTypeDropdown = ActivityTypeCell.getElement().childNodes[0];
var value= row.getCell(cellindex).getElement().childNodes[0].value

Replace the cellindex with the inxdex of the cell where the text box lies.

Happy Coding

gridview with textbox template field

Add a client side onkeyup to each textbox in a RowDataBound method where each row is called. Find the textbox using FindControl and then add onclick attribute referring a JS method.

In JS method, get the textbox value and then apply your logic.

Something like:
protected void GridView_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
  TextBox tb = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("TextBox1");
  tb.Attributes.Add("onkeyup", "javascript: ValidateMe(this);"); 

function ValidateMe(currtextbox)
   // Use currenttextbox.value to validate

1. I told you somewhat like that - not an exact code (yet i dont see a potential place of null reference if you have a textbox1 defined)
2. Whatever you are doing, rowdata bound will be raised when you bind your grid. Use Visual Studio DEBUGGER and then follow the execution to see how things are working. Use F11.
