I am trying to save the text typed into a text box when a profram closes.  I would also like to have it back in the textbox when I load the form.  It is a variable because when running the application it can change. i'm not looking for a default setting.

My.Settings.Item = textbox.text in the form_closing event   and

textbox.text = My.Settings.Item in the form_load event.

The above doesn't work, looking for ideas.  I am very new at Visual basic.
