I would  like to change the back ground color where ever the cursor is for form input. this is what i came up with so far but it dose not work

If TextBox1.Focus = True Then
            TextBox1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightBlue
            If TextBox1.Focus = False Then TextBox1.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.White
        End If
    End Sub

basicly when i tab throu my form i would like the textbox background to change to light blue so its easy to see where cursor is

Thanks for any help
