You could add a custom validator to the page, and handle the ServerValidate event
 

  protected void CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(object source, ServerValidateEventArgs args) {

    decimal value;
 

    // Test for decimal

    if (!decimal.TryParse(args.Value, out value)) {

      args.IsValid = false;

      return;

    }
 

    // Test for 2 decimal places

    args.IsValid = ((value * 100) % 1 == 0);

  }

Open in new window

If you don't require users to type the decimals but only want to prevent them from inputting more than 2, you can use a CompareValidator, set the ControlToValidate to your textbox, set the Operator to DataTypeCheck and Type to Currency.
It will allow numbers like 123 | 123.0 | 123.00 | 123.99
