I have a vb form with many text boxes on it.
is there an elegant way to route all their events to one function (except calling the function in each text box event handler)

Thanks in advance.

and just to confuse the issue, in VB.NET, this is ALMOST automatic.

You create a control array by giving all of the text boxes the same name and setting the index property.

In the events, you'll see an additional parameter "Index" which tells you which one fired the event.
