Handling events for controls within a programmatically added User Control

Hi Experts,

I have a user control that has a combobox in it called cbxClientLIst.

The user control is added to a group box on a form programmatically. (see Below).

I want to fill a cell in a datagridview with the details of the selected value once a user leaves the user control combobox... essentially manage an action.

How do I write a handler that fires when the user tabs off the combobox? ..so when they tab off I can take the contents of the combobox and add it to another control....

Kind Regards
        thisUserControl.Location = New Point(339, 16)
        thisUserControl.TabIndex = 0
