catching events when you click on a seperate form

P: n/a
Hello,
My application has 2 forms on display at one time. The form on the
left contains a tree view which drives the contents of the form on the right.

My problem is that I would like to capture the event that occurs when you
enter text in a field on the main form and then click on the other form
without tabbing or clicking other fields on the from. What Event is triggered
in this instance I need to capture this event and obtain the text that was
entered by the user. It doesn't seem to trigger the lost focus event or leave
event until after it triggers events on the second form, thus overwriting the
data.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx in advance

Geri,

How about capturing the

Lost focus event for the text field
OR
Lost focus event for the form
OR
Recieved focus event for the other form?

or updating in "real time" by checking the keypress, keydown events in the
text box that is altering the state of the first form from the second?
