Hi

That was the first thing I tried but the problem with that is that it calls the event after each character.
I need something that fires after I have type the whole word.
I am using the LostFocus event, but it is not quite the same.
Anyone know of anything else?

And how do you know when the text is completed? a fixed length char? a keypress?


So i the users have to press enter you can use on keypress i it's a fixed length use textchanged and a like

Update event raised after user press the return key

Private Sub TextBox1_KeyPress(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs) Handles TextBox1.KeyPress
        If e.KeyChar = Microsoft.VisualBasic.ChrW(Keys.Return) Then
            'Your Code to Update
Update()
        End If
    End Sub

Update event raised after user typed 10 characters

    Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
        If Len(TextBox1) = 10 Then
            'Your Code
Update()
        End If
    End Sub
