In VB.Net 2003.  I make a textbox and set the text property to 'whatever'.  Can I change this value from my program so the next time I start the program it has the new value in the textbox?

Not without storing the new value in some kind of external file or the registry.

You have a preference?...

Did you want to save just ONE TextBox or all TextBoxes?  ...any other data you need to save?

Here is the simplest case scenario using VB.Net 2005.

(VB.Net 2003 has a different FormClosed() event but I can't remember it's exact name at the moment...)

Public Class FormC

    Private fileName As String = "TextBox1.txt"

    Private Sub FormC_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        If System.IO.File.Exists(fileName) Then
            Dim sr As New System.IO.StreamReader(fileName)
            TextBox1.Text = sr.ReadLine
            sr.Close()
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub FormC_FormClosed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosed
        Dim sw As New System.IO.StreamWriter(fileName)
        sw.WriteLine(TextBox1.Text)
        sw.Close()
    End Sub

End Class
