Update Other Text on Textbox TextChanged Event

Posted on 2010-09-21

Hi,
I have been trying to get the TextChanged Event to fire in the code behind, after someone has edited a textbox.
I have autopostback = true, and have tried creating another event and then assign it to the textbox control.
I can't get any event to fire.
I am using the wizard control and the code behind recognizes the textboxes.
What am I doing wrong????
Protected Sub txtFirstName_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles txtFirstName.TextChanged
          SetFullName()
     End Sub

     Public Sub SetFullName()
          Me.txtFullName.Text = Me.txtFirstName.Text & " " & Me.txtLastName.Text
          Me.txtDomain.Text = Me.txtFirstName.Text & Me.txtLastName.Text
          Me.lblDomain.Text = "www.sms.com/" & Me.txtDomain.Text
     End Sub

     Protected Sub txtLastName_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles txtLastName.TextChanged
          SetFullName()
     End Sub


<tr>
                              <td>
                                   First Name:</td>
                              <td>
                                
                                   <asp:TextBox ID="txtFirstName" runat="server" CssClass="wizardboxes"
                                        MaxLength="50" Width="70%" AutoPostBack="true" ></asp:TextBox><asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator1" runat="server" 
                                        ControlToValidate="txtFirstName" Display="Dynamic" 
                                        ErrorMessage="First name is required."></asp:RequiredFieldValidator></td>
                          </tr>
                          <tr>
                              <td>
                                   Last Name:</td><td>
                                   <asp:TextBox ID="txtLastName" runat="server" CssClass="wizardboxes" 
                                        MaxLength="50" Width="70%" AutoPostBack="true"  ></asp:TextBox><asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator2" runat="server" 
                                        ControlToValidate="txtLastName" Display="Dynamic" 
                                        ErrorMessage="Last name is required."></asp:RequiredFieldValidator></td>
                          </tr>

I prefer my code to be behind the module.

how did u generate this code? did u go into design view then double click on the control? or something along those lines?

gotta go, be back in the a.m.

See if this works:

<asp:TextBox ID="Address1" runat ="server"></asp:TextBox>
<br />
<asp:TextBox ID="Address2" runat ="server"></asp:TextBox>


 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    Address1.Attributes.Add("onkeyup", "document.getElementById('Address2').value= document.getElementById(this.id).value;");
.......

Hi, everyone

I appreciate all your answers and will split the points between you, but I found out what I didn't do.
Something simple
EnableViewState="true"

Thanks
