I am writing a textbox in windows form, but I am nto sure wat action to take if i want to say have user input something in the textbox, and when they hit ENTER, i will parse that string and so something.
I could make a button beside the textbox and have user to press that button everytime they want to commit a string but it would seem inappropriate..

Second question is that How come I cannot change the size of my textbox in the windows form? (i am using the windows form builder, it seems that it would only let me extend my Width but not Height??

thanks for any help.

1) Open Form Proprties and select button as AcceptButton for this form. In this case, when user presses Enter, this button handler is called.

2) Single-line edit box height cannot be changed, it is defined by font. You can change height for multiline edit box (Multiline property is set to True).
