If the textbox MUST have a value, you will need a required field validator and a compare validator:

<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="MyRequiredFieldValidator" runat="server" ControlToValidate="MyTextBoxID" ErrorMessage="Please specify a value"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
<asp:CompareValidator ID="MyCompareValidator" runat="server" ControlToValidate="MyTextBoxID" ErrorMessage="The value entered is not of type XYZ" Operator="DataTypeCheck" Type="Integer"></asp:CompareValidator>

You can also use double instead of Integer if you require a decimal value.

Note that if you do not need the textbox to always contain a value, then you don't need the RequiredFieldValidator.
