hello guys

This should be very easy for most of you. I have a asp.net web page where I have a ASP text box named "txtdate" below of which I have a html button called "Add Date" next of which there is another textbox named "txtAddDate". I also have a lable named lblDate

What I need is:

1)Textbox "txtDate" should not accept more than integer 3(the maximum value a user can enter should not be more than 3)

2)When the user enters one date in "txtAddDate" and clicks on "Add Date" the date should be populated on lblDate(this is when the user enters integer 1 in txtDate)

3)When then user has entered 2 in txtdate then he should be able to add two dates into lblDate by clicking on Add Date after entering two different dates. Same case in 3 where in he can add three dates.

4) And then I can insert these dates into a table in the datebase.

Can anyone please help me in this regard?

an example with some code would be highly appreciated...

All this is regarding my job and I'm desperately in need of help.
