I have a simple windows form that has a few labels and masked text boxes.
All controls are set to visible = false except for the first label and masked textbox.

What I am trying to do is when I enter the data into the masked txtbox, the next label and masked textbox shows visible=true.

The problem I am having , when I hit tab to change focus, there are no other controls to switch to as they are visible=false.

I tried to change visible=truse on the next control on leave but that does not seem to work.

Any ideas?

Probably the best thing to do is make the next box appear when the textchanged event fires from the maskededitbox. It's not beautiful, but it would work. The other option is to capture the tab or enter key.

Here is an example:

    Private Sub TextBox1_PreviewKeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PreviewKeyDownEventArgs) Handles MaskedTextBox1.PreviewKeyDown
        If e.KeyData = Keys.Tab Then
            Label2.Visible = True
            MaskedTextBox2.Visible = True
        End If
    End Sub
