    Send keys to textbox

    Hi, can anyone teach me how to send certain keys to a textbox. Something like sending a key to move to the next line or TAB.

    The line is something like this:
    text1.text = "blah blah blah" & (Enter) & "kay kay kay" & (TAB)

    How do you do just that?

    Thanks!

    if you want to send carriage returns and tabs to a textbox you can use the VB constants: vbCrLf and vbTab.

    i.e.
    VB Code:
    1. Text1.Text = "1st line" & vbCrLf & "2nd Line" & vbTab & "Tab!"



    you will also have to set the Textbox's MultiLine property to True if you're going to be adding carriage returns
