Hi,i have an editor.aspx where i have a table named sbaTable. That table is dynamically filled with rows in my code page editor.aspx.vb...On every row I have one checkbox and one textbox.. what i want to do is to disable textbox whenever checkbox on same row is checked=true!

editor.aspx.vb i have a loop that counts as many rows as i need(works fine)..
Private Sub PopulateGrid()
...create tablerow
...create tablecell "tcOk"
Dim chkOK as new checkbox = "ok-" + tdindex.text
chkOK.autopostback = true
''chkOK.oncheckedchanged" doesnot exist here for some reason(OnCheckedChanged exists in designer mode)!? that is why i tried with handlern below...
addhandler chkOK.checkedchanged, adressof chk_OncheckedChanged --

...create tablecell "tcNote"
Dim txtNote as new textbox = "note-" + tdindex.text
...addrows and cells to the table mm..
End Sub

Public sub chk_OncheckedChanged(ByVal sender As Object,ByVal e As EventArgs)

Dim checkBox as checkbox = Ctype(sender, CheckBox)
Dim idString as string =
End Sub

Problem = chk_OnCheckedChanged is never hit...can i do this the way i am trying oris there another solution??

Thanks in advance

I think the handler is correct.  However, make sure the table is not re-generated on postback. You may try to generate the table in Page_PreRender to ensure that the viewstate preserves the controls that you add.

Hi Thanks for your answer.. i tried to create
 Private Sub Page_PreRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreRender
         'If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
         'End If
End Sub

it doesnot help table is regenereted anyway and i can't use 'If Not Page.IsPostBack Then either because then i dont get anything back when page the same time i must set autopostback = true for my checkbox or nothing will happen when clicked!!

ok - got it - it was PreInit not PreRender as I initially said. See a quick and dirty implementation - hopefully u get the idea.

<%@ Page Language="VB" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<script runat="server">
    Protected Sub Page_PreInit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
    End Sub
    Protected Sub PopulateGrid()
        Dim tb As New Table
        Dim tr As New TableRow
        Dim tc As TableCell = Nothing
        tc = New TableCell
        Dim chkok As New CheckBox
        chkok.AutoPostBack = True
        AddHandler chkok.CheckedChanged, AddressOf chk_oncheckchanged
    End Sub
    Protected Sub chk_oncheckchanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        Dim chkok As CheckBox = CType(sender, CheckBox)
        Response.Write("Checked: " & chkok.Checked.ToString())
    End Sub


<html xmlns="" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">

Hi, first of all thank you very much for your answers I leaned some stuff that i didnot know, but unfortunately it didnt help me...when i tried your last suggestion i got some other stuff that i couldnot avoid mm
Anyway i solved it with is solution if anyone else woould need it....

chkOk.Attributes.Add("onclick", "chkChecked(document.forms[0].note_" + tdIndex.Text + ")")

 <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
   // functions to disable/enable dynamically created checkboxes/textboxes in tblSba
                function chkChecked(obj)
                     obj.disabled = !(obj.disabled);
                function txtChanged(chkobj, noteobj)
                        if (noteobj.value == '') {
                         chkobj.disabled = false;
                         else if (noteobj.value != ''){
                         chkobj.disabled = true;
