In WPF you should have TextChanged and LostFocus.

That looks like the events for an elementHost or a userControl; not the events for a textBox.  How did you add the textBox to the form?

The only way I found to add a WPF textbox is to create a usercontrol with textbox inside and place user control in my winform. Is there any other way?

I see, so it's a WPF control in a winform app (not a wpf app).  So when you add the control to your project, you can edit the event fields in the control directly.

It's a bit of a read, but this article goes in depth on controls in hybrid applications.

This article is interesting, but it is still unclear how can I access a textbox event from a window that holds a user control that contains a textbox

you will need to expose the behaviors and properties from WPF to your Windows Forms. I think this article is a bit better: http://www.developerfusion.com/community/blog-entry/8393574/wpfwinforms-interop-a-highlighted-textbox/
