Good Day Experts!

I have an inquiry about using the InputBox in VB.Net.  It comes pre-populated with the Ok and Cancel buttons.  All the examples I have found for determining that the Cancel button was clicked is based off of nothing being typed in and Ok clicked if something was typed in.  

How can I determine which button was actually clicked in the event the User entered something and then wanted to Cancel?

Thanks,

You'll need to create your own input box in order to know this. The InputBox method only returns a string, and it does not give you any access to the underlying form that is displayed. It is unlike the MsgBox method that returns a DialogResult which you can interrogate for a user's action.

long story short u can't.
InputBox is something derived from VB6 so you better use custom dialog box which u implement yourself and can handle any button u decide.

Agreed.  There were hacks available in VB6 that allowed you to differentiate, but those do not work in VB.Net due to the new architecture.

Build your own "input dialog"...
