Hi,
I have a VB.Net form with 3 textboxes(amount, fees and total amount).
I am trying to use JavaScript property like onchange to calculate my Total Amount...
but I can't make it to work...it goes not recognize onChange=...
Please could someone help?
Thanks!
Here is my code:
------------------------------
Sub CalculatePmtAmt()

        TotalRef = (CType(txtFees.Text, Double) + CType(txtAmt.Text, Double))
        txtTotalAmt.Text = FormatNumber(TotalRef, 2)

End Sub
------------------------------
<asp:TextBox ID="txtTotalAmt" runat="server" onChange="CalculatePmtAmt" Style="left: 184px; position: absolute;
top: 288px" TabIndex="23"></asp:TextBox>

It wont work that way.
Put this code in page load
txtTotalAmt.Attributes.Add("onchange", "javascript:CalculatePmtAmt();")

As far as I know you can't call a code behind method from JavaScript unless you use ajax to make the call and mark the code behind method with correct attribute to make it callable from JavaScript. The codebhind method needs the [WebMethod]
 attribute applied to it and the method needs to be static as well.
Here is a link to a simple example and the second link explains why the page method you are calling needs to marked as static.

oops my bad,I didnt see that method was server side and was thinking as javascript.Yeah Outoftouch is right.
But there is another way.We can attach javascript function to do this math.something like

var tot=document.getelementbyid(txttotal)
tot.value=Parseint(document.getelementbyid(txtfees).value)+Parseint(document.getelementbyid(txtamt).value)

Thank you for your reply and help...
But I decided to take a more simplified approach...since for some reason my javascript function still did not work.
Here is my code:
It does what I was looking for but there is still one formating problem....

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

If Not IsPostBack Then

 txtSFFees.Attributes.Add("onchange", "txtTotalAmt.value = parseFloat(txtAmt.value) + parseFloat(txtNSFFees.value)")
 txtAmt.Attributes.Add("onchange", "txtTotalAmt.value = parseFloat(txtAmt.value) + parseFloat(txtNSFFees.value)")
 txtTotalAmt.Attributes.Add("onchange", "txtTotalAmt.value = parseFloat(txtAmt.value) + parseFloat(txtNSFFees.value)")

End If
End Sub

Example:
       Amt:  20.00
   NSFFees:  2.00
   -------------------
 Total Amt:  22

Is there a way how I can make Total Amt to be shown as 22.00 and not 22?
Thank you...
