Hi,
I have a ASP.net 1.1 Webform that contains a datagrid , that contains 4 columns
Product--Qty--Price--Total

Each column has a textbox. The user will enter a value in the Product and the Qty and Price textbox. I want to call the TextChange event of the Qty and Price and textboxes whenever the text inside them changes.
In the called textchange event I want to calculate the expression Qty*Price and assign the result to the Total textbox in the datagrid.

How can I do this?

Note:The controls are in the Datagrid.

TextChange event occures only when user inputs text into textbox AND hits enter key. But this way page-post-back occures. If user moves focus to another control with a mouse or TAB key, TextChange event will occur only after next postback. And I think it is not what you want.
I think that the best choise here is javascript. You should assign javascript junction to a string variable and register this function with Page.RegisterStartupScript. Next, whenever you add textboxes to datagrid, you should add this function as textbox's onleave (I guess) attribute to appropriate textboxes.
One problem you'll meet here is textboxes' names (or IDs in javascript). Even if you assign unique names to textboxes in datagrid's template columns they are chaned during page render. This happens so to keep unique names in a whole datagrid.
But I think this can be solved.
Here is what I can suggest you from a ASP.NET side. Javasript is not my strong side so I can suggest you wait for someone to respond with answer how to build javascript function (or even more better solution) that I was talking about or post a pointer question in javascript TA.

You can define a DataColumn in the DataTable that has Qty * Price for the expression.

i'm agree with Ramuncikas, it better than you use java script rather than postback and its problems
