Calling client-sdie vbscript function in server control

Calling client-sdie vbscript function in server control

Calling client-sdie vbscript function in server control

Can this be done?

I have a datagrid that allows for edits.  When the record in question populates with the data and the customer moves from a particular asp:TextBox, I want to call a client-side vbscript function that does some calculations.

If not, I can go with javascript.  But it's internal to the company and we use on IE, so compatability is not an issue.


RE: Calling client-sdie vbscript function in server control

You can add an attribute to the textbox for the event you wish to fire the function:

txtMyBox.Attributes.Add("onblur", "vbscript:SomeFunction()");


For adding this to the edit items of a datagrid, you'll need to add them in the OnItemDataBound event of the datagrid, and only when the ItemType == ListItemType.EditItem:

  case ListItemType.EditItem:
    //Add your attributes here by referencing the objects
    //  directly
    TextBox txtMyBox = (TextBox)e.Item.FindControl("txtMyBox");
    txtMyBox.Attributes.Add("onblur", "vbscript:SomeFunction()");
