Hi All
Creating new Textboxes

 dim txt as new system.windows.forms.textbox
 dim cnt as integer = 0

 on a tabpage button Click event create the textbox

 tabpage.controls.Add(txt)

 cnt = cnt + 1
 txt.top =  = 25
 txt.name = "TextNam" & cnt.tstring

Creating 5 or more new textboxes named textnam1 - 5

I would like to create a handler / check to ensure txtname1 2 & 3 have no contol over the entry but 4 integer and 5 currency entries only


Thanks

you need to use AddHandler to bind your event to a method. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6yyk8z93(v=vs.90).aspx

for 4 and 5, instead of a textbox, you should use a NumericUpDown control: http://www.dotnetheaven.com/article/numericupdown-control-in-vb.net

*** I know using the try catch block in this manner is not good practice but I've seen it done in training videos.
For the integer textbox try:
        AddHandler txt.TextChanged, AddressOf Text_Changed
    Private Sub Text_Changed(ByVal eventsender As System.Object, ByVal eventargs As System.EventArgs)
        Try
            Dim i As Integer
            i = Int(txt.Text)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Invalid Character")
        End Try
    End Sub

you need to use the eventsender:

Private Sub Text_Changed(ByVal eventsender As System.Object, ByVal eventargs As System.EventArgs)
         Try
             dim txt = directcast(eventsender, textbox)
             Dim i As Integer
             i = Int(txt.Text)

Open in new window

again saw that you are inserting in a tabpage:
        AddHandler TabPage.Controls(txt.Name).TextChanged, AddressOf Text_Changed

   Private Sub Text_Changed(ByVal eventsender As System.Object, ByVal eventargs As System.EventArgs)
        Try
            Dim i As Integer
            i = CInt(Int(TabPage.Controls(txt.Name).Text))
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Invalid Character")
        End Try
    End Sub
