//Javascript Code

<script type="text\Javascript">

function Show()
  var ctrl = 
  var saveText = ctrl.value;
  var range = document.selection.createRange();
  var specialchar = String.fromCharCode(1);
  range.text = specialchar;
  var pos = ctrl.value.indexOf(specialchar);
  ctrl.value = saveText;
  range = ctrl.createTextRange();
  range.move('character', pos);
  range.text = 
  window.event.returnValue = false;
</ script>

// HTML Code

<FTB:FreeTextBox id="FreeTextBox1" toolbarlayout="ParagraphMenu,FontFacesMenu,FontSizesMenu,

 runat="Server" DesignModeCss="designmode.css"/> 
<asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" />  

<asp:Button ID="btnInsert" Text="Insert Text" CssClass="button" runat="server" />
 I have registered the click event on pageload

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs  e) 
HiddenField1.Value = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
btnInsert.Attributes.Add("onClick", "Show()");

When I run this page it give me error

"Object required"
Object required FormBuilder.aspx, line 644 character 29

Please help me

Perhaps this question suits better to ASP.net forum :-)

By use of HTML and JavaScript it is very easy:

<input type="text" .... ><input type="button" value="reset text box" onClick="this.previousSibling.value='default value'">


since u r using server control(btnInsert) u have to register client event for that ,but what u r trying to do is going for a server side event;that is that show() will be executed only at server side and not on client side;and there is no metod with show() on server side from u r code thatz y itz saying object expected ;try to using a html button for that having runat server and register onclicl for tatit will work

I also get "Object Required" error when using IE (all IEs). No error when using FF. I am using WebFXTabPane JS and always get error on line 62 or 63. Below is the excerption for line 62 and 63:

}; WebFXTabPane.prototype.getSelectedIndex = function () { return this.selectedIndex;}; WebFXTabPane.prototype.addTabPage = function ( oElement ) { if ( !hasSupport() ) return; if ( oElement.tabPage == this )

return oElement.tabPage; var n = this.pages.length; var tp = this.pages[n] = new WebFXTabPage( oElement, this, n ); tp.tabPane = this; this.tabRow.appendChild( tp.tab ); if ( n == this.selectedIndex )

Thank you in advance for any help.
