Hello,
I have a groupbox with two textboxes within it. I need to determine if they have been modified. How can I do this?

For clarification, how do I access the textboxes within the groupbox and determine if those textboxes have been modified?

If you know there only text boxes in the group box, you could loop through each text box in the group box controls:

      Dim ctl As TextBox
      Dim WasChanged As Boolean

      For Each ctl In Me.GroupBox1.Controls

         WasChanged = ctl.Modified

      Next

If you're trying to find out if any of the text boxes have been changed, then the only problem with above code is that WasChanged will take on the value of the last text box in the group.

Instead you might consider:

      Dim ctl As TextBox
      Dim WasChanged As Boolean = False

      For Each ctl In Me.GroupBox1.Controls
         If ctl.Modified then
            WasChanged = True
            Exit For
         End if
      Next

That's what you get for 5 minutes of coding in the comment block without testing.

You might also think about splitting the points.  If one person starts and idea, and another fixes any problems, then you can say that my comments was an 'Assisted' comment.

caddsman,

I'm all for splitting the points on this one.  TheLearnedOne rang in first with the basic code - I just fixed a simple logic error in the algorythm.

Cheers,

Frodoman
