The repeater will add a prefix to each textboxes ID to ensure uniqueness.  The following function will loop through all textboxes of the repeater, and if the ID of the given textbox contains the string specified, the it will consider it a match and you can access it's value property easily.  Here is the function:

    function textboxFinder() {
        var repeater = document.getElementById('Repeater1');
        var inputs = repeater.getElementsByTagName('input')
        var txtId = 'txtName' //ID of textbox in repeater template

        for(var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {
            if(inputs[i].type == 'text') {
                if(inputs[i].id.indexOf(txtId) != -1) {
                    //Matching textbox, lets show its value

I am sure you will have to modify this a little bit to perfectly suit your needs, but this should give you a great place to start.

This function has a slight flaw.  If you have similiarly named textboxes in your repeater (like txtName and txtNameOfDog, for example), and you use this function to search for all "txtName" textboxes, it will consider the txtNameOfDog textboxes as a match.  As long as you have decent naming conventions you should not have to worry.

Hope this helps!  Don't forget to mark the most helpful post(s) as Answer for the sake of future readers.  Thanks!

TextBox with client-side javascript

Jscript, moving from client-side to server-side (.NET)
Hey all I’m working translating a web-app written in client-side Jscript to run on the server-side as JScript.NET. Without needing to get too specific, I am using Jscript because the original page aggregated raw data to produce statistical results (this was done dynamically based on user 'sort-by' options). The final output is an html report that can be emailed. Because this is currently being done on the client side, as the raw data grows the load-time grows as well (to the point that has almost become unusable). I’m posting here to see if anyone has any experi...
