Hi Chidu,

You can achieve this by javascript...

You can use onkeypress event and call javascript method...

then you can use document.getelementbyid to get the valye nad assign it to another box...

Right. But, the text boxes are created dynamically. And Id's of the dynamically created textboxes will not be known.
So, how to overcome this?? Any sample code plz..

Yes, we can bind the event and dynamically id also we can bind to them..based on any unique attribute we can set the ids and then we can access them again for the same..

Hi Chidu,

you can go like this:

Add this event while you are dynamically creating the textbox. : onkeyUp="performAction(this)"

<input type="text" onkeyUp="performAction(this)"  id="textBoxId"/> // dynamically created textBox

function performAction(dynamicElement)
    //here you can perform your actions.

select this as a best answer if it solve your problem.
