"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Hi, this is pretty crude, but works. If it works for you i can tidy it up to make it less dependent on hard coded variables.

Basically for each control that can change you assign it the same event handler, in the event handler you check that the sender of the event has Focus. We check it has focus to stop us processing the event twice for the radio buttons as when we click on a different radio button the checked state changes in the current selection in addition to the newly selected one, not really a problem given that you are enabling a save button.

Anyway, hope this helps
public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        private bool onLoad = true;
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
 
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            radioButton1.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            radioButton2.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            radioButton3.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
 
            checkBox1.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            checkBox2.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            checkBox3.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged); 
        }
 
        protected override void OnActivated(EventArgs e)
        {
            onLoad = false;
        }
 
        void CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (!onLoad)
            {
                Control c = (Control)sender; 
                if(c.Focused)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("Changed");
                }
            }  
        }
    }

I got something like this:
 private bool onLoad = true;

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            BuildStatBar();
            EnableSaveButton();
        }

        private void EnableSaveButton()
        {
            rbtnInitialPriceOption.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            rbtnAdjustmentPriceOption.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            rbtnInterimPaymentOption.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            rbtnFinalPaymentOption.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);

            chkboxBarley.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            chkboxDesBarley.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            chkboxDurum.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
            chkboxWheat.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(CheckedChanged);
     
        }

        protected override void OnActivated(EventArgs e)
        {
            onLoad = false;
        }

        private void CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (!onLoad)
            {
                Control c = (Control)sender;
                if (c.Focused)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("Changed");
                }
            }
        }

I have not tested it yet but we need to check if the person the txtListName has changed?
