Why doesnt this work?

txtTimeBox1.Attributes.Add("onload", "$('" + txtTimeBox1.ID + "').text('Hi')");

I dont necessarily need for the textbox to say hi.  What Im trying to do is add jquery dynamically to a server control

Thanks Experts!

try this

txtTimeBox1.onload = function(){
  this.val( "Hi" );
};

But i don't think that a input box can have onload event, so also try

document.ready(function(){
   $("textbox1Id").val("Hi");
});

also you can simple have the value in the textbox
<input type="text" value="Hi">

When using ID selector you need # for selector
 
Try this

txtTimeBox1.Attributes.Add("onload", "$('#" + txtTimeBox1.ID + "').text('Hi')");
