How to create a Leave event for a Text Box

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
