Hello experts,
in my Vb.Net windows application I want to set
for a textbox the property underline.
In VB6 the statement is
   Me.Text1.FontUnderline = True
In Vb.Net the property
   Me.Textbox1.Font.Underline = ...
does not work, because it is here ReadOnly.

If anyone knows a solution how to set Underline,
please supply related code.

   Thank you very much for every help.

Hi HStrix,
    You can set a new font to the textbox with desired properties:

    TextBox.Font = New Font(TextBox.Font, TextBox.Font.Style Or FontStyle.Underline)

You have to create a new Font based on the existing one but set the Underline style:

    Me.TextBox1.Font = New Font(TextBox1.Font, FontStyle.Underline)
