which button do you have to keep on hitting? from what I see, hitting button2 should clear all the textbox but considering your other questions, you have code in the TextChanged event of some textbox that short-circuit the clearing.

set a class level variable to True before your loop, in all your textchanged event handler if the variable is true, set the textbox to empty otherwise do your process.
