Use Required field validator for this instead of going for c# or JS

<asp:TextBox ID="txtDate" Text='<%#Bind("Date") %>' runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator2" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtDate" ErrorMessage="Please enter EventDate">*</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>

Control to validate is Id of the respected textbox to which you want to validate.

hi sugi
here i am providing the code to validate two text-boxes with a condition that two must be filled you just use this code for the text-box of grid view template
In Aspx

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" ></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" ></asp:TextBox>
<asp:Button ID="button1" runat="server" OnClick="validate" />

In code behind
 protected void validate(object sender, EventArgs e)

string name1 = TextBox1.Text;
string name2 = TextBox2.Text;
if (((string.IsNullOrEmpty(name1)) && (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(name2))) || ((!string.IsNullOrEmpty(name1)) && (string.IsNullOrEmpty(name2))))
Response.Write("Please fill the two boxes");
Response.Write("Thank You");

Thanks and Regards
