ASP.NET - Event for ItemTemplate Textbox?

Hello,

I have a datagrid (with paging, 15/page) with a column made up of textboxes (itemTemplate).  Since there is only one column that's editable, I allow end-users to update the data in this column then save the data by clicking a [save] button, which loops through and saves the data.   However, since my grid has paging, I would like to  check if there were any updates made to this column and prompt the user to save or not before allowing the page change.  How do I capture the event of the textchange of the text box (itemtemplate) in this column?  Is it possible or do I need to try another approach altogether?  Thanks.

You can solve this 2 ways:
1. Store each row immediatly after editing (using an Update button)
2. Use some javascript to ask the user what to do. In this case you need to capture all onclick events for the paging button, like this:
btNextPage.Attributes("onclick") = "return confirm('Save first?');"
Of course, this is just the general idea. Preferably you would like to check whether an update is done first before showing the confirm box.

Let me know.

D'Mzz!
