I need to create a leave event for a text box called txtZoneA

Once the user leaves the text box I will be required to validate the data in the text box.

Very basic outline:

    Private Sub txtZoneA_Leave(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles txtZoneA.Leave
        If DataIsValid() Then
            'do whatever
            'Do what you need to let the user know the data is invalid
        End If
    End Sub

Replace "DataIsValid()" with whatever logic is used to determine what data is valid.  The Focus call in the else clause doesn't let the user leave the TextBox unless the input is valid, take it out if this is not your desired behavior.
