Capture a specific value from Multi-Line Text box (asp.net, C#)

Capture a specific value from Multi-Line Text box (asp.net, C#)

Capture a specific value from Multi-Line Text box (asp.net, C#)

(OP)
How can I detect a value in a multi-line text box then run some code based on the result?

EG:

Text Box has these values:
123456
123457
123458
123459
1000001

When the user enters the value 1000001, I want it to call some code.

Thanks.

RE: Capture a specific value from Multi-Line Text box (asp.net, C#)

The best way to do this would be to use javascript to detect the key strokes and when that value is entered, trigger your code.
Do you want to trigger code on the page, or a background process?

Hi, thanks for getting back. Yes, as soon as the 1000001 is entered I imagine it will click a hidden button to call the on_click event?

RE: Capture a specific value from Multi-Line Text box (asp.net, C#)

You could have a postback happen and trigger code.
Personally, I would use JQuery to make an AJAX call to a handler. Have that do what ever code you need. This way, you are not dealing with a post back.
