I want to dispaly the selected text in a "textbox" in a label
when my app is running.
I have other control also on my form. datagrids  for updating information and other button controls.

So, when the user selects text in the textbox which is bound to a datasource , i need to display the  number of characters in the selected text like this
       
         label.text = textbox.selectedtext.length.tostring();

My question is which event of the textbox do i use.

Enter / Focus/ Leave/ LostFocus etc.

In VS.net in the events list only  "Enter"  is there why?

I think the code may be in mouseup event and keyup event

private void textBox1_KeyUp(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs e)
{
  evalSelLen();
}

private void textBox1_MouseUp(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
{
  evalSelLen();
}

private void   evalSelLen()
{
   Label1.Text=TextBox1.selectedtext.length.tostring();
}
