<ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center"></ItemStyle>

I'm not sure I understand the question.  The ItemDataBound event fires while a record is being DISPLAYED from the DB, not updated.  Also, javascript is a client side language, you can't use it for the server side ItemDataBound event.

In general, if you want to validate your inputs, you should use ASP.NETs built in validation controls: http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/aspnet_refvalidationcontrols.asp

I'm not supposed to use the validation controls. yes. I know itemdatabound fires when the row displays.
But I need to validate the controls using javascript. I'm able to do it for add
the add button is a link button. But I'm unable to do a find control for update button as it's an image as u can see in the above code.

Can u plz. help me know how do to a find control for update
I can handle the rest.
The update button has a text as image inside the edit command column.
how can I do a find control....since, there's no id.

I need it ASAP.
IT'S EXTREMELY URGENT.
