Examples

private:

   {
      // If the TextBox contains text, change its foreground and background colors.
      if ( textBox1->Text != String::Empty )
      {
         textBox1->ForeColor = Color::Red;
         textBox1->BackColor = Color::Black;

         // Move the selection pointer to the end of the text of the control.
         textBox1->Select(textBox1->Text->Length,0);
      }
   }

   void textBox1_Leave( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Reset the colors and selection of the TextBox after focus is lost.
      textBox1->ForeColor = Color::Black;
      textBox1->BackColor = Color::White;
      textBox1->Select(0,0);
   }
private void textBox1_Enter(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // If the TextBox contains text, change its foreground and background colors.
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(textBox1.Text))
    {
        textBox1.ForeColor = Color.Red;
        textBox1.BackColor = Color.Black;
        // Move the selection pointer to the end of the text of the control.
        textBox1.Select(textBox1.Text.Length, 0);
    }
}

private void textBox1_Leave(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Reset the colors and selection of the TextBox after focus is lost.
    textBox1.ForeColor = Color.Black;
    textBox1.BackColor = Color.White;
    textBox1.Select(0,0);
}
    Private Sub textBox1_Enter(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles textBox1.Enter
        ' If the TextBox contains text, change its foreground and background colors.
        If textBox1.Text <> [String].Empty Then
            textBox1.ForeColor = Color.Red
            textBox1.BackColor = Color.Black
            ' Move the selection pointer to the end of the text of the control.
            textBox1.Select(textBox1.Text.Length, 0)
        End If
    End Sub 'textBox1_Enter
   
   
    Private Sub textBox1_Leave(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles textBox1.Leave
        ' Reset the colors and selection of the TextBox after focus is lost.
        textBox1.ForeColor = Color.Black
        textBox1.BackColor = Color.White
        textBox1.Select(0, 0)
    End Sub 'textBox1_Leave
End Class 'Form1 

Remarks

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Handling and Raising Events.

The OnLeave method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnLeave(EventArgs) in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnLeave(EventArgs) method so that registered delegates receive the event.
