Hi,

When the text changes, the event does not fire.
Public Sub txtNotes_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
          txtNotes.Attributes.Add("onTextChanged", "javascript:return confirm('Data has Changed. Click OK To Continue');")
End Sub

Your help is appreciated.

Well you need to add this line in Page_load not inside txtNotes_TextChanged

--> txtNotes.Attributes.Add("onTextChanged", "javascript:return confirm('Data has Changed. Click OK To Continue');")
    'Add this line in Page_Load

Actually... there's no OnTextChanged event in JavaScript so you'll need to use 'OnBlur' or 'OnChange' event.

txtNotes.Attributes.Add("onBlur", "javascript:return confirm('Data has Changed. Click OK To Continue');")

or

txtNotes.Attributes.Add("onChange", "javascript:return confirm('Data has Changed. Click OK To Continue');")

& Remember you need to put this inside Page_Load event of the page

Excellent! -tushar!
here is my final answer and it works as expected.
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        txtNotes.Attributes.Add("onchange", "javascript:return confirm('Data has Changed. Click OK To Continue');")
End Sub

Thanks for a quick response.
