Append string values to an asp.net textbox.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I created a number pad using imagebuttons.  We have touch screen monitors and I was appending the string value of the button on the server side, but it was flashing every time you pressed a button.  So I want it when the press the ImageButton that says 1 on it to append 1 to the contects of the textbox.

This is the HTML code for the asp.net imageButton.

<asp:ImageButton ID="imgNumberPadButton1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/App_Themes/Images/NumberPadButtons/Button1.png" onclientclick="PressNumber1();return false;"/>

Here is my Javascript.

<script type="text/javascript">
        function PressNumber1()
            var currentText = document.getElementById('tbxEnter').innerText;
            var newText = currentText + '1';
            document.getElementById('tbxEnter').innerText = newText;
I also tried this.
document.getElementById('tbxEnter').innerText += '1';

It just keeps displaying 1 in the textbox.  I need to continue to append numbers into the aspNet textBox and then submit the contents to the server when a different imageButton is

Need help with validating an alphanumeric string within a textbox control.

Hi everyone,I am developing a simple WinForms app for a presentation next week and need to validate that a particular string in a particular textbox is alphanumeric.  I have included the code from the button click event handler below: // Alphanumeric private void btnValidate4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { try { if (txtAlphanumeric.Text == "") MessageBox.Show("Please enter an alphanumeric string before clicking the 'Validate' button.", "Whoa there, pardner!!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information); else { Regex rgxAlphanumeric = new Regex("^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$"); Match alphaNumericMatch = rgxAlphanumeric.Match(txtAlphanumeric.Text); if (!alphaNumericMatch.Success) MessageBox.Show("The string supplied does NOT match the specified pattern.", "Error!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error); else { MessageBox.Show("The supplied string matches the specified pattern.", "Success!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation);

How do I set a string in a textbox to unicode?

I have a report requirement to embed the fonts when the report is exported to PDF. The report server is  SSRS 2005 SP3 and upgrading to SSRS2008 is not an option. I have validated that all requirements have been met to ensure embedding have been met except one -  "The characters in the string that has the Font property set are Unicode, not ANSI. No font embedding occurs for ANSI characters." I referenced this article for requirements -  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms159713.aspx . My data is in a dataset field that was populated by a stored procedure. When I examine the rdl the it has a type name of System.String (<rd:TypeName>System.String</rd:TypeName>) How can I ensure that any strings in the report are recognized as unicode? The SSRS PDF renderer must be interpreting the strings as ANSI because that's how they are being rendered in the PDF file preventing embedding. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

keep values in textbox in gridview whilst paging

Hi,   I have a gridview in my webpage which has paging enabled. There are around 5 textboxes in a row and when I enter some text and then move to another page and move back to the page I entered the values in, they are not lost. I have enabled the viewstate in the gridview. I have implemented a datatable to my grid which should hold the values in the viewstate. This worked before I added paging. Please can someone offer some advice as to how I can maintain the values in textboxes whilst moving between different pages? I have tried searching it but I can't seem to find any relevant info.   Thank you very much.

Custom Validator on DDL&Textbox values

I need to write a 2 custom validators that works as follows: I have a formview (Formview1) with an EditItemTemplate. The validators need to validate values in "DropDownList1" and a textbox called "EndUserGUIDTextBox" If the value in DDL1 is ("Assigned" or "Assigned to End User") and the value of EndUserGUIDTextBox is ("unassigned" or "pending" or NULL) then I need a validator to fire and return {"GUID must be assigned when status is" & DLL1 value}. If the value in DDL1 is ("In Stock" or "In Repair") and EndUserGUIDTextBox is NOT ("unassigned" or "pending" or NULL), then I need a validator to fire and return {"GUID must not be assigned when status is" & DLL1 Value}. The validators needs to run and show in the formview when the UpdateButton in my Formview is clicked. I'm doing this in VB. Real noobie here! All help appreciated. Thanks,

Conversion from type 'TextBox' to type 'String' is not valid

I have a FormView that allows a user to register for a company event. I want to do a couple of things with this form. 1. I need to write this data to a MS SQL database 2. I need to send an email confirmation of their registration to their email. I know how to do both of these things, but i am having trouble doing both at the same time. It would be nice if I could do it in one click, but I coded it into two pages to try to help simplify it. The first page allows the user to input their information into a formview and when they click the submit button, it places those answers into session variables:Protected Sub InsertButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Session("FirstName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("FirstName") Session("LastName") = Me.FormView1.FindControl("LastName")  <li> <label> First Name</label> <asp:TextBox ID="FirstName" runat="server" class="text-box" Text='<%# Bind("FirstName") %>' /> </li> </ul> </div>

Using Rules to populate a textbox based on other values.


I am building a web-friendly form in Infopath (little new to the software)...

I have been able to hook up my form to my SharePoint and pull in user data so I can pre-populate various fields.

One field is not in our Profile services (nor Active Directory).  I'll call it Company Code.

But you can determine Company Code by checking the Company and Department.

Something like:

Company = "ABC", Department = "123" then Code = "XCV"
Company = "ABC", Department = "456" then Code = "VCX"


Since I am successful pulling the Company and Department from the Webservice.

I figured I build a text-box and put 30 or so rules on it to analyze the contents of Company and Department to determine what should be in the text-box.
So I used Conditions to check the Comany and Department and then the rule set the contents of the Company Code box.

However it seems as though the rules never run. 

And I got to thinking, when DOES the rule know when to run?  I don't see an "onchange" event or anything (trying to avoid code for web-friendly anyways) - so....

I do have the Company and Department fields populate immediately when the form is opened, but is that early enough for the rules?

Do the rules have to manually tri
