If you want all the text in a textbox aligned to one side, then use the alignment property of the textbox.

Textbox1.Alignment = 0 (left-align)
Textbox1.Alignment = 1 (right-align)
Textbox1.Alignment = 2 (center-align)

If you want left and right align in one textbox, I don't know

Don't think that is possible in a textbox
Maybe you could use the rich textbox (add it in the component list) there you have the setalignment property, which you can set per paragraph.

Tested something:

do the following
add a rich text control to a form and name it RT
add a button to the form

paste the following code in the form's code window

Private Sub Command1_Click()

    RT.SelAlignment = 1
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

    RT.Text = "Bike" & vbCrLf & "test" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "car"
   
End Sub

now select a line and press the button, the line will be rightaligned!
to make it center aligned use  RT.SelAlignment = 2 and left aligned : RT.SelAlignment = 0

Good luck
