LostFocus doesn't appear on EventsList ( Prop. window )

I need to use catch an event LostFocus, but its not visible in Evens
list in Properties Window of Form1.
Should i do it manually?
How then?

The VB6 LostFocus event in C# is called "Leave". (The GotFocus event is
called "Enter").

LostFocus and GotFocus are not meant to be used in a normal windows form
application. As MSDN says they are low level events. You should use Enter
and Leave events. Enter and leave events are fired withe respect to the
windows form validation mechanism (event though the latter didn't work quite
well in .NET 1.x).

This was regarding the child controls, forms on the other hand suppress
firing these events, thus they are not listed in the property browser. Forms
fire Activate and Deactivate events instead. This is because forms are top
level windows and as such *activation/deactivation* (which is different than
focusing and losing focus) are the state that they undergo during the
application lifetime.

So look for Activate and Deactivate events when it comes to forms.

Does anyone know the difference between these two?

I am using Managed C++ with a CFormView and a MaskedTextBox and have used MAKE_DELEGATE to sink the LostFocus event of this control. I have other events I've sinked off this control and they all work fine, however, the LostFocus does not fire. I found Scribble online and they do the same thing I did, however, when I used this code in Visual Studio 2005 the LostFocus event didn't get fired either.

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.

I posted this earlier... or thought I did... anyway.. it's doesn't appear in the list so I'm reposting it. Can someone please explain to me how to set up the lostfocus event for a combo box. I need the combo to return to its default value when the user clicks away from it ... either somewhere on the form itself or another app. I have no clue how to do this and would really appreciate some help. Thanks!

On the help page "TextBox Members" clearly there is an event for LostFocus. It is inherited from control. So without the event directly available for TextBox how do I use it? I know I could create the event in code, but isn't there a more direct way?
