Hello Guys! I am stuck in a situation where in i need to copy txtbox1's value into txtbox2. I am able to accomplish this using the following code, which is in the page_load event

        txtbox1.Attributes.Add("onblur", String.Format("javascript:document.getElementById('{0}').value=document.getElementById('{1}').value;", txtbox2.ClientID, txtbox1.ClientID))

Everything seems to work perfectly, but to prevent the user from editing the text i have disabled txtbox2. So now what happens is when txtbox2 receives the focus, it gets the value from txtbox1. The problem arises when we go to the next control which is got postback enabled, and when the post back occurs, the value in txtbox2 disappears.

How do I retain the value in the text box. My main aim is that the user should not be able to edit the text in txtbox2.

You cant just use Ajax and do something like...

txtCTC.text = txtAllowance.text

Do it on the txtAllowance.text event and enable autopostback.

you can check the value of the textbox in the page load if is it empty and the second textbox is not empty then assign the value of the first textbox to the second textbox like in the snippet code
<body onload="doChange()">
function doChange()
{
    if (document.getElementById("TextBox1").value =" " && document.getElementById("TextBox2").value !="")
        document.getElementById("TextBox1").value = document.getElementById("TextBox2").value
}

its happening as the changes made by script on a text box which is disabled are lost during the Postback,means if you populated any value by means of script without manually writing ,these value will be lost during the PostBack.Its a perfect ok and no mistake from ur end.

The work around is ,make a thumb rule that any changes u do in script ,re write the same the same logic in Pre Render Event. In your case ,Populate a Hidden Html Input with the values you populated in your disable TextBox ,and in Prerender load the value from the Html Hidden Input back to your disables textbox
