Command Button opens website using text from textbox

Hi there,

I would like to know how to create an event procedure for a command button that uses the text of a textbox to go to a specified website.

Example: User types "google" in a textbox, hits command button, and a web browser opens http://www.google.com.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

WINDOWS FORMS I've a form that has a textbox that allows the user to enter a string. On the LostFocus event, the textbox formats the string into a preferred format. However, if the user presses the "Save" button while the textbox has the focus, the LostFocus code doesn't run at the right time, so that the "Save" function is dealing with an incorrectly formatted string and the whole caboodle goes splat.
