Hello Karanw,
javascript is enabled. As for onclick currently our code does something ...
#################
                                <asp:Button ID="NSOEF_EXT_Preview_Form_Button" runat="server" BackColor="Silver" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Tahoma" Font-Size="Small" ForeColor="Black" Style="z-index: 186; left: 544px; position: absolute; top: 920px" Text="Print Preview" Width="96px" OnClick="Declaration_to_PrintPreviewt_BTN_Click"/>


#################

    protected void Declaration_to_PrintPreviewt_BTN_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        con = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["STUDENT_MASTER_INDEXConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

        cmd = new SqlCommand("SMI_P003_NSOEF_EXT_Declaration_Main", con);
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

        cmd.Parameters.Add("@EnrolID", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = NSOEF_EXT_Declaration_Back_EnrolID_TB.Text;
        cmd.Parameters.Add("@Active", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = '1';
        cmd.Parameters.Add("@StuEmergCont1Title", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = NSOEF_EXT_StuEmergCont1Title_DDL.Text;

        con.Open();
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

        int newIdentity = int.Parse(cmd.Parameters["@EnrolID"].Value.ToString());
        Response.Redirect("NSOEFP_EXT_Print.aspx?newid=" + newIdentity.ToString());

Hi Hosneylk/ Karanw,

Here's the one that calls it and it's included in Page_Load

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        NSOEF_EXT_Preview_Form_Button.Attributes.Add("onclick", "return ShowConfirm(" + NSOEF_EXT_Declaration_EnrolID_TB.ClientID + ");");

you're missing the quotes when assigning the call to the button. and in your js function use document.getElementById to get the object 1st and then read the value of it.

btw the proper way to do this would be to add it to the event onclientclick of the button.
SOEF_EXT_Preview_Form_Button.Attributes.Add("onclick", "return ShowConfirm('" + NSOEF_EXT_Declaration_EnrolID_TB.ClientID + "');");

function ShowConfirm(textBox)
    {
        var tbObj = document.getElementById(textBox);
        var confirmtext ="Thank you! ...Your Registration number is: ";
        return confirm(confirmtext + tbObj.value);
    }

Open in new window
