Depends on the language.
In MS Access or a bound control in other languages look for:
DataFormat or Mask or Format properties and modify these to #0.00

If it is not bound then when you get the data from wherever but before you assign it to the textbox use something like:
textboxname.text = format("12.0000", "#0.00")

code below
        Dim d As Double

        d = 12.0000
       textbox.Text = Format(d, "#0.00")
        Dim s As String
        s = "12.0000"
        textbox.Text = Format(CDbl(s), "#0.00")

if your input is an double variant use d mode
if your input is an string variant use s mode

all of them use format function
