I am creating a data entry form in VB.NET with VS2008.  I need something like a textbox but can wrap and take up to 500 or so characters.  Is there such a control?  I recall one being in Access or the old VB6 day I believe...  

Thanks in advance...

Textbox can do that ... you just have to set Multiline property to true

Me.TextBox1.Multiline = True
