The combobox "PanelAddComboBoxCurrency" is selected to GBP so it when typing numbers into it it should populate some other textboxes, doesnt seem to work though?


private void PanelAddTextBoxSubTotal_Leave(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (PanelAddTextBoxSubTotal.Text == "")
            {
            }
            else if(PanelAddComboBoxCurrency.SelectedText == "GBP")
            {
                double Subtotal = Convert.ToDouble(PanelAddTextBoxSubTotal.Text);
                double VAT = (Subtotal / 100 * 17.5);
                double Total = (Subtotal + VAT);

                PanelAddTextBoxVAT.Text = Convert.ToString(VAT);
                PanelAddTextBoxTotal.Text = Convert.ToString(Total);
            }
        }

I think you are subscribing to the Leave event of the ComboBox.

Instead you should try to subscribe to the SelectedValueChanged event.

the content of the textboxes PanelAddTextBoxVAT and PanelAddTextBoxTotal need to change depending on the combobox value WHEN a textbox PanelAddTextBoxSubTotal is changed.
