I have a formview with some templates. This is hooked up using objectdatasource. To the default layout I add some additional Label/Textboxes dynamically based on metadata in a database. I create the additional controls in the ItemCreated event using ParseControl on a Placeholder and populate the values in the DataBound event. This all works fine.
I have been modifying the extra textboxes using a ForEach loop in the ItemUpdated and ItemInserted events of the main formview. However this modifies each textbox regardless of whether the textbox has changed.
What I want is to only modify the textbox if it has changed. I have tried to hook up OnTextChanged for the additional textboxes (using ParseControl) but the handler is never getting called. I thought maybe I was making a mistake in the execution order of the page but now I'm wondering whether ParseControl isn't hooking up the event handler correctly? Anyone come across this?
