I'm not sure if this is possible, but if I have an <asp:DetailsView />, can I attach a javascript function to the onkeyup event of the text boxes (visible while your in Insert or Edit mode)?
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function formatPhone( obj ) {
	var str = obj.value.replace(/[^0-9]/g, '');
 
	if( str.length < 10 ) return;
 
	var str1 = str.substring(0,3);
	var str2 = str.substring(3,6);
	var str3 = str.substring(6,10);
 
	obj.value = '(' + str1 + ') ' + str2 + '-' + str3;
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<asp:DetailsView ID="details" runat="server" AutoGenerateRows="False" CellPadding="4"
            DataSourceID="detailisSource" DataKeyNames="ID">
<Fields>
                <asp:BoundField DataField="ID" HeaderText="ID" InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True"
                    SortExpression="ID" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="First" HeaderText="First" SortExpression="First" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Last" HeaderText="Last" SortExpression="Last" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Phone" HeaderText="Phone" SortExpression="Phone" /><!-- I want to attach to the onkeyup of this BoundField -->
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Fax" HeaderText="Fax" SortExpression="Fax" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Street" HeaderText="Street" SortExpression="Street" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="City" HeaderText="City" SortExpression="City" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="State" HeaderText="State" SortExpression="State" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="Zip" HeaderText="Zip" SortExpression="Zip" />
                <asp:CommandField ShowDeleteButton="True" ShowEditButton="True" ShowInsertButton="True" />
                <asp:HyperLinkField InsertVisible="False" NavigateUrl="Customers.aspx" ShowHeader="False"
                    Text="Return to Customer List" />
            </Fields>
</asp:DetailsView>

To achieve that, it is easier to use a TemplateField instead of a BoundField where you need to do something custom like that.
