Bullfrog (MIS) (OP) 20 Oct 99 13:48 whats the code to check a textbox to see if text has been erased by a key down , drag thru to hilite and punch delete Thanks RE: erase the data in a textbox ? MikeLacey (MIS) 30 Nov 99 09:13 Hmmm There's probably a clever way to do this (Alt255's the clever one) but you could always just save the contents of the text box and then, when the user has finished with it, compare the current contents of the text box with yor saved copy. Do you need to specifically trap when the user has deleted the text box all in one go? -ml Mike LaceyMike_Lacey@Cargill.Com Cargill's Corporate Web Site RE: erase the data in a textbox ? mrregan (MIS) 30 Nov 99 12:10 If you initialize the text box with one space, you can use the text change event to see if the text box length is changed to zero.
