textbox1 = String(23," ")

Ryan ChongCommented:
or you want to set the maximum chars of the textbox? if yes, try set the MaxLength property to 23 instead.
Ryan ChongCommented:
or if you mean the layout of textbox, you can set its Width property accordingly.

if above are not what you intend to achieve, pls elaborate further.
