vb.net or c#, InputBox to get user value ("abc", "123", etc.

I found some sample code for inputbox but they mainly relate to inputs in form of what button a user clicks.

Question: How can I code to get user input by prompting the user a text box to enter her/his choice like "ABC", "123", etc?

Are there such control or I have to use another form using Friend scope instead?

Yes I have. That is why I started my question saying: "I found some sample code for inputbox but they mainly relate to inputs in form of what button a user clicks."

Are you in C# or in VB.

The InputBox function is not a Framework function. It exists only in the Microsoft.Visual.Basic namespace to mimick the same function as it existed in VB6. So it is available only in VB. What it does is exactly what you want: present a TextBox to the user for some input, and return you the value.

There is no equivalent in C#, where you need to design your own form to do something similar, but it is a gain since you can do anything in it. If you have seen something about InputBox in C#, it is simply somebody who designed a form and gave it that name. If you create you own, you will not be limited in anyway with what it can do.

Any Function available to VB is available to C#.
If you want to use the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction.InputBox method, you only need to add Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll to the references of your project.
