Hi

I have a formview control with a textbox.  When the user types a value into the textbox, I need to access a database and retrieve some values, in order to populate other textboxes in the same formview.

Is it possible to write the data access code in the codebehid of the textbox lostfocus event, and then populate the other textboxes?

Dunno about on TextBox LostFocus...
You could do this, which will trigger does trigger when you esentially loose focus...
Protected Sub SomeTextBox_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SomeTextBox.TextChanged
'Do stuff here...
End Sub

Hi

Thanx for the response.  The problem is, that the textchanged event is not fired??  Why would that be?

Have you set AutoPostback="true"?

<asp:TextBox id="SomeTextBox" runat="server" AutoPostback="true" />

It is working, sort of.  Just have a problem using the textchanged event, cause if I populate the textbox from a javascript, and ten <tab> off the textbox, the code is not fired.

Any other suggestions?

You could (could you?) trigger the event when you populate the textbox...
What I'm suggesting is that whatever event is populating the textbox, could also run the code... (No?)
BTW, what could be setting the value of the textbox, other than a user?

Thanx for your replies.  I got it working.  A cardswipe machine is actually setting the value of a textbox.  A clientscript calls a dll to initialise the "pinpad" and then "read" the number into the textbox.
