i am using the following method to compare my forms textbox values with database values id they are same or not before updating.If they are not same i have to perform certain operations.But i have many many fields in table and i dont want to write the following code for every field.its getting very lengthy.I want to compare them using a very short code using looping..using a function etc..
Please help me..

if (!String.Equals(txtMobile.Text.Trim(), objdatarow["MobileNo"].ToString().Trim(), StringComparison.Ordinal))
                   mailstr.Add("MobileNo:-" + txtAddress.Text.Trim());

This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind.
I can't see anything there that could be looped - so probably you need to provide a better example?

If you named your textboxes the same as the names of your database fields you can do a foreach on Form.Controls and check the ID or even use FindControl.

However, I would not recommend this method. It may be a pain to do them individually but I still think you are better off doing them individually. It will be easier to find bugs if a particular field does not work and if you later have to add some specific logic for a field it would be more readable.

Do not comapre values on client side. Do it on server side, using stored procedure[^] (SP).

    @MobileNo VARCHAR(30),
    @MyKey INT
    UPDATE MyTable SET MobileNo = @MobileNo
    WHERE ID = @MyKey AND MobileNo<>@MobileNo

The reason i suggest you to use SP is SQL Injection[^].
