Force TextBox Validating?

Tabbing or clicking from one TextBox1 to another trips the TextBox1_Validating event, but I noticed if a person clicks next on a button, the Validating event does NOT trip, thus circumventing my Validating.

Q. Is there anyway to force the TextBox to validate programmatically?

Though about TextBox1.Focus(), but then how would I un-Focus()???
