I am typing in a lot of text and all of a sudden VB won't let me type in anymore.  I got all the way to the right of VB and the horizontal scroll won't go any furthur.  How can I enter in a lot of text and still be able to have a vertical scroll bar?

Thanks.

You may need to set the MultiLine Property to True, then in the ScrollBars Property set as 2 or 3 and make sure MaxLength Property to 0.

I can only type so much and then the horizontal scroll bar in VB will stop.  Here is an example:

Text1.Text = "Long paragraph"  Keep going this way and VB will stop scrolling horizontally.
                   "can I type here too"
                    "and here? etc. for the same Text1?

In your form_load event, try add:

Text1.Text = "Long paragraph"  & vbcrlf & _
                   "can I type here too" & vbcrlf & _
                    "and here? etc. for the same Text1?"

?? Try adjust the ScrollBars Property to meet your requirement.
