Hi divyasrinivasan,

This is for validating textbox for numeric only :

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="OperationSheetMultipleArticle.aspx.vb" Inherits="OperationSheetMultipleArticle" EnableSessionState="true" %>
<%@ OutputCache Location="Client" duration="5" varybyparam="none" %>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<script type="text/javascript" language=javascript>
function keyDownNumber()
    var key;    
    if(navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer')
        key = event.keyCode;
        key = event.which
    if ( !(key >= 48 && key <= 57) && key != 8 && key != 46 && key != 36 && key != 37)
        event.returnValue = false;

Hi there... still new so please forgive me if I make a mistake... to add validation to a textbox that is inside a gridview...
1. Convert the field into a text field...
2. then add validation into the <EditItemTemplate></EditItemTemplate> and the <InsertItemTemplate></InsertItemTemplate>

as below... :

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Client Number" SortExpression="ClientNumber">
                <asp:TextBox ID="txtClientNumber" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("ClientNumber") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:TextBox ID="txtClientNumber" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("ClientNumber") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="val1" runat="server"  ControlToValidate="txtClientNumber" ErrorMessage="Client Number Required" Display="Dynamic"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>                    
                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("ClientNumber") %>'></asp:Label>
            <ControlStyle CssClass="editControlTextFields" Width="96%" />
            <HeaderStyle Width="110px" />

you can also use in built validation controls provided by .net framework instead of java script.

USE thid.id as argument in Validate function.
like I have my javascript function validateData(source) and I called it as follows on update link OnClientClick="return validateData(this.id);"
