Handlers in VB .NET

I have several textboxes and I want one dbl click handler to be used for all
of the textboxes. How do I set that handler for all of the text boxes? I
know
how to set it for one, but how do I get all of the text boxes to use the
same
handler?

Almost everybody in this newsgroup is using VB6 or lower. While you may
get a stray answer to VB.NET questions here, you should ask them in
newsgroups devoted exclusively to .NET programming. Look for newsgroups
with either the word "dotnet" or "vsnet" in their name.

For the microsoft news server, try these newsgroups...

microsoft.public.dotnet.general
microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb
microsoft.public.vsnet.general

There are some others, but these should get you started.

write the code for one - then -
at the sub declaration where it says "handles textBox1.DblClick" - add a
comma, and then "TextBox2.DblClick, TextBox3.DblClick, ... etc
the "handles" clause tells VB which events it handles

The is easier in VB.Net, but I assume you are using VB6 or earlier

You could write an event handler, and assign it all text boxes. This
woould be very easy, if you are using an array of text boxes (ie
txtBox(1), txtBox(2), txtBox(3)) if not, the only way I know how is
like this..

Start a VB project and add 4 text boxes to the form (textbox1,
textbox2...)

Replace any code in the forms code window with this...

Private WithEvents ctlTextBox As TextBox

Private Sub ctlTextBox_Click()
MsgBox ("A box was clicked")
End Sub

Private Sub Text1_Click()
Call ctlTextBox_Click
End Sub

Private Sub Text2_Click()
Call ctlTextBox_Click
End Sub

Private Sub Text3_Click()
Call ctlTextBox_Click
End Sub

Private Sub Text4_Click()
Call ctlTextBox_Click
End Sub

Everytime you click on a text box, the ctlTextBox_Click event will
fire.

Hope this helps :)
