i want to add two numbers that are generated dynamically which contain symbols like dollar and comma.

ex:
 [txtField1] + [txtField2] =  [txtsum]
$1,111.11 + $1,111.11 = 2222.22

function calsum()
{
   var objField1 = document.getElementByUD('txtField1');
   var objField2 = document.getElementByUD('txtField2');

  var sum1 = parseFloat(objField1.value) + parseFloat(objField2.value);

   document.getElementByUD('txtsum')  = sum1.value;

}

You can use String.Replace to filter out commas and dollar signs, do the float conversion, then add them up.

txtField1.Replace("$","");
txtField2.Replace(",","");

In javascript, you would use:

var sum1 = parseFloat(objField1.value.replace(/\$|\,/g,'')) + parseFloat(objField2.value.replace(/\$|\,/g,''));

when txtField1 or txtField2 is null then result is shown as NaN.  
when field1 or field2 are null then result should be ''  (empty)

Try this out:
function calsum()
{
	var objField1 = document.getElementById('txtField1').value.replace(/[^0-9.]/g, '');
	var objField2 = document.getElementById('txtField2').value.replace(/[^0-9.]/g, '');

	var sum1 = (objField1 == null ? 0 : parseFloat(objField1)) + (objField2 == null ? 0 : parseFloat(objField2));

	document.getElementById('txtsum').value = sum1;
}

This would be a bit safer, I think:
function calsum()
{
	var objField1 = document.getElementById('txtField1').value.replace(/[^0-9.]|\.(?=\d*\.)/g, '');
	var objField2 = document.getElementById('txtField2').value.replace(/[^0-9.]|\.(?=\d*\.)/g, '');

	var sum1 = (objField1 == null ? 0 : parseFloat(objField1)) + (objField2 == null ? 0 : parseFloat(objField2));

	document.getElementById('txtsum').value = sum1;
}

minus addition doesn't work
 5   -5   = shows 10 instead of 0

Silly me...


Corrected:
function calsum()
{
	var objField1 = document.getElementById('txtField1').value.replace(/[^0-9.-]|(\d)-|\.(?=\d*\.)/g, '$1');
	var objField2 = document.getElementById('txtField2').value.replace(/[^0-9.-]|(\d)-|\.(?=\d*\.)/g, '$1');

	var sum1 = (objField1 == null ? 0 : parseFloat(objField1)) + (objField2 == null ? 0 : parseFloat(objField2));

	document.getElementById('txtsum').value = sum1;
}
