TextBox.SetFocus in VB: how to?

TextBox.SetFocus in VB: how to?

TextBox.SetFocus in VB: how to?

I cannot find the method in subject.
This method (pertinent not only to TextBox, BTW) is present in VFP.
I can't recall if it was present in VB3...VB6 (but something tells me it was).
So, did MS "in its infinite wisdom" did away with this method altogether in VB .NET, or there's some replacement for this method which I cannot figure out?
Please enlighten me, AHWBGA!



RE: TextBox.SetFocus in VB: how to?

Vb3 to Vb6 did indeed have it - and so does VB.NET, but they renamed it to ... Focus

RE: TextBox.SetFocus in VB: how to?

You are right, VB6 had (has) .SetFocus smile

What's AHWBGA ponder

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
