I'm working with JavaScript eventlistener

Right now I have this:

            // ----- Event Listener - TextBox Click -----
            document.getElementById('DataGridA_txtBox1').addEventListener('click', function () {

                // get value of textbox and save in variable
                var x = document.getElementById("DataGridA_txtBox1").value;

                // after clicking in textbox save existing textbox value in hiddenfield1
                document.getElementById('HiddenField1').value = x;

            // ----- Event Listener - TextBox Click -----

The above event listener works fine.
When I click in a Textbox called DataGridA_txtBox1, then the value of the textbox is stored in HiddenField1

What if I have 3 textbox on my page.

The texboxes on my page would be called this:


I only want to have one event listener.

Is there a way so revise my click event so that the click event applies to any textbox whose id starts with DataGridA_txtBox?
