FormView control - change font color or back color

When a user modifies the value in a textbox in a "EditTemplate" of the Form View, I would like the font color or back color of the text box to change - even before the update is submitted.

How can I do that? Thanks.

You can add an onchange event to your textbox:


Or use the onkeyup event as well. You may need to add the handler for this if your textbox box is being created in the client side.

Please mark as "answer" if this helped you in anyway.

Thanks. here is how I did it:

Protected Sub FirstNameTextBox_OnTextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

Dim t1 As TextBox

t1 = FormView1.FindControl("FirstNameTextBox")

t1.BackColor = Color.GreenYellow

End Sub

More control over fonts and colors?
I used to develop my code in VS.NET 2003, but used Dreamweaver to write the html, mainly because VS would re-write hand-coded html and I'm picky. Now I've gotten VS 2005 and I am trying it out.  However, a really nice feature of the DW code view is that different tags get different colors (table is green, input is yellow, br is blue, etc).  I would really like to implement this in VS 2005. But when I look at the Fonts and Colors options, there are options to change the color for HTML Element Name, HTML Attribute Name, HTML Attribute Value, etc.  But I don't see a way of chan...

Possible to control color of bar in DW Graph control
This is related to my prior posting in that the same client (on the same bill format to be sent via email) wants a simple bar chart (like those displayed on most electric and gas bills). The problem I have is that he wants the BARS on this chart to be blue and NOT the default red color. I've looked everywhere and even exported the DW source and looked thru all of the text describing the graph control, but I can't find anyway to change the color of the bar from that default "red" color to anything else. Does anyone know of any way to control the color of the bars in ...

How to make template field control color same as row background color
This is really a two part thing:  1.)  I want to make a linkbutton control in a templatefield the same color as the row color. I have alternating row colors, so I can't just hard code it. 2.) I want to make the link button change colors when the mouse goes over the ROW. Then go back to row color onmouseout.  So basically, the link will be invisible until the row is moused over.  Thanks! Here are a couple of examples.  In GridView1, the HyperLink color is set to match the background color.  Note the RowStyle and AlternatingRowStyle do not override ...
