I am populating textbox2 with data from the database what i would like to try and do is populate textbox1 with text from textbox2 when button1 is clicked.  This is what i have so far. I am not exactly sure the vb code should be. So the question is what should the vb code be?


<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2">
       <ItemTemplate>
               <%-- <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label><br /><br />--%>
               <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
               <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" text='<%# Eval("ShipCity") %>'></asp:TextBox><br />
               <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="edit" OnClick="Update" />
        </ItemTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>

Try this

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" OnItemCommand="repeater1_ItemCommand">
       <ItemTemplate>
               <%-- <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label><br /><br />--%>
               <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><br />
               <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" text='<%# Eval("ShipCity") %>'></asp:TextBox><br />
               <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="edit" OnClick="Update" CommandName="Update" />
        </ItemTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>
Private Sub repeater1_ItemCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RepeaterCommandEventArgs)
        If (e.CommandName = "Updade") Then
            Dim TextFromTextBox2 As String = CType(e.Item.FindControl("TextBox2"),TextBox).Text
           Dim txtTemp as new TextBox= Ctype(e.Item.FindControl("TextBox1"),TextBox)
                  txtTemp.Text=TextFromTextBox2
        End If
    End Sub

Here we use the ItemCommand event of the data repeater and the CommandName property of the button to get the text

Corrected like this: I had to take the new out

Protected Sub Repeater1_ItemCommand(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.RepeaterCommandEventArgs) Handles Repeater1.ItemCommand
        If (e.CommandName = "Update") Then
            Dim TextFromTextBox2 As String = CType(e.Item.FindControl("textbox2"), TextBox).Text
            Dim txtTemp As TextBox = CType(e.Item.FindControl("textbox1"), TextBox)
            txtTemp.Text = TextFromTextBox2
        End If

    End Sub
