I have a Visual Basic 6 form where there is a need for multi-line textbox functionality but the location of the controls do not allow for a multi-line textbox. The first textbox is near the right side of the screen. The second box is near a little lower and near the middle of the screen. The third text box is on the left side of the screen. Because the text is in different locations, I don't know of how I could use a multi-line textbox. How can I get the three textboxes to share text changes. For example, if textbox 1 has a maxlength of 10 and the user types in 15 characters, 10 characters should go into textbox1 and the next 5 characters should go into textbox2. If the user deletes 6 characters while textbox 2 has the focus, textbox2.text should change length to 0 and textbox1.text would change to len(9) and get the focus. .
