Set text on control with javascript

To set the text on a control with javascript use:


Set the text value of the given element.
This function assumes this document is defined and not null and has a function getElementById
Used by: -
function SetText(elementId, text)
// Check input values
if(IsNullOrUndefined(document)){alert('SetText: Object [document] is null or undefined');}
if(IsNullOrUndefined(elementId)){alert('SetText: Object [elementId] is null or undefined');}
if(IsNullOrUndefined(text)){text = '';}
// Get the given element by id
var resultGetElementById = document.getElementById(elementId);
if(IsNullOrUndefined(resultGetElementById)){alert('SetText: Object [resultGetElementById] is null or undefined');}
// Check if the firstChild is null or undefined
// Element does not have a first node, add an textnode.
// Element has a first childe node, so replace it's text value.
resultGetElementById.firstChild.nodeValue = text;

Change cursor to hand with CSS, when mouse over a column in a ASP .NET 2.0 GridView

When you want to change the cursor to a hand instead of the default pointer on mouse over, use CSS.
In you're gridview column:
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Barcode">
<ItemTemplate><span class="hand"><%# Eval("Column")%></span></ItemTemplate>

In the header:

<style type=”text/css”>
.hand { cursor: pointer; cursor: hand; } /* cross browser hand */
