This method adds a javascript method to marks text box onkeydown, that javascript method takes the rowindex as argument. This code is being converted from C#. The method works fine using C#, but I got a “Conversion from string "javascript: DoPostBackWithRowInd" to type 'Double' is not valid “message when using the VB code below. Please help!


<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

        function DoPostBackWithRowIndex(rowIndex) {

            if (document.getElementById('<%=HdnSelectedRowIndex.ClientID%>') != null) {

                document.getElementById('<%=HdnSelectedRowIndex.ClientID%>').value = rowIndex;

            }

            return true;

        }

    </script>

Hi Ramkisan, Thanks for helping me. Your answer is very helpful because it eliminated the error and I was able to debug the problem further. I eventually also needed  to substitute the two + sign to & sign in order to pass the javascript function properly. Again, your help is truly appreciated!!!! :)
