I have these webform controls

<asp:TextBox ID="HoursWorkedMonday" CssClass="data-input rt" ClientIDMode="Static" runat="server" TabIndex="2" />
<asp:TextBox ID="HoursWorkedSaturday" CssClass="data-input rt" ClientIDMode="Static" runat="server" TabIndex="2" />
 <asp:TextBox ID="TotalRegular" CssClass="data-input" ClientIDMode="Static" runat="server" Enabled="False" /></div>

The hours are for TotalRegular are accumulated with jquery


            $(".rt").each(function () {

                $(this).focusout(function () {
                   [b] calculateRegularHoursSum();[/b]

  function [b]calculateRegularHoursSum()[/b] {
            var sum = 0;
            $(".rt").each(function () {

                if (!isNaN(this.value) && this.value.length != 0) {
                    sum += parseFloat(this.value);

If I populate the controls from code behind in c#  when I run this code in jQuery

                    var reghours = $("#TotalRegular").val();
                        if (!reghours.trim()) reghours = 0;

        <div id="ConfirmPanel" style="display:none">
            <div class="dialog-label">Regular Hours</div>
            <asp:Label ID="regularhours" CssClass="hours-label" runat="server" /><br />
            <div class="dialog-label">Overtime Hours</div>
            <asp:Label ID="overtimehours" CssClass="hours-label" runat="server" /><br /><br />

the dialog displays nothing.  Only if I go in one of those fields and do a focusout() does the control have values
