This is the default.aspx, there are a lot of generated forms like buttons/textbox/etc and they are all having their own unique id like comment_<%StuCount%> which looped through. It was made by an intern before me and I am new so I have no clue what I am doing.

<asp:Repeater ID='Evaluations' runat='server' Visible="false">
        <p align='center'><b><font size='4' face='Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif'>
                If Session("Track") = 1 Then Response.Write(" Course")
        <p align="center"><b><font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Please use this form to evaluate your own professional behavior and that of<br>the other members of your group in the 
            Response.Write("<b>" & theCourse & "</b>")
            If Session("Track") = 1 Then Response.Write(" course")
        .</font></b></p><p align="center"><font size="2"><b><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">1*=Unacceptable&nbsp;&nbsp;2*=Poor&nbsp;&nbsp;3=Satisfactory&nbsp;&nbsp;4=Highly Satisfactory&nbsp;&nbsp;5=Outstanding&nbsp;&nbsp;UA=Unable to Assess<br></font></b><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><em>* Please include a written comment explaining scores of 1 or 2.<br>
        You are also welcome to include other comments that highlight exemplary behavior or situations where improvements should be made.</em></font></font></p>

    <%StuCount = StuCount + 1%>

        <input type="button" name="Submit2" runat="server" onserverclick="SubmitEval" id="Submit2" value="Submit" class="cssbutton" />
        <input type="reset" name="Reset" value="Reset" class="cssbutton">

And the Js can be something like cannot be empty for now, I will add the rules later.

function validCheck(id) {
    return false;

     if ((document.getElementById(id).value).length == 0) {
         alert("The textbox should not be empty");
         return false;


Thank you, I am like 3 days into ASP.Net. I just need a way to pass the data from the generated forms into the javascript for validation, and since their ID is all generated, there isn't a hardcoded way to do so. So I am looking at Loop or something but my brain is fried atm.
