Posted by manoj [send private reply] at March 29, 2002, 02:17:48 PM R U asking how 2 type abc.text="sdk" in the keypress event?
I really couldn't get ur question. If its anything different plz elaborate. Also, msdn lib is quite full with all sort of examples 2 do these simple things.

Posted by manoj [send private reply] at March 29, 2002, 02:42:58 PM Well friend I thought my above answer was sufficient. Still, if u know nothing about it, try pressing the button at the form window or just look in the menu items to get the general format of a keypress event. Once u get the method, just type the above in it (and use appropriate name 4 the textbox). U'll get dozens of examples in any tutorial.

Posted by metamorphic [send private reply] at March 30, 2002, 06:28:56 AM if you want to run a program from vb using a texbox, get the user to input the program nam they want to run in the text box and when they click a button call the 'SHELL' function. for eg, this would display an input box and then run the app that was typed in:
strAppName = InputBox("To run the calculator type 'calc'. " & "to run Notepad type 'notepad'.", "Enter Shell Command")
Shell strAppName, vbNormalFocus
Hope this helps
