Examples

The following code example changes the ForeColor of a TextBox displaying currency data. The example converts the text to a decimal number and changes the ForeColor to Color.Red if the number is negative and to Color.Black if the number is positive. This example requires that you have a Form that contains a TextBox.

private:
   void currencyTextBox_TextChanged( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      try
      {
         // Convert the text to a Double and determine if it is a negative number.
         if ( Double::Parse( currencyTextBox->Text ) < 0 )
         {
            // If the number is negative, display it in Red.
            currencyTextBox->ForeColor = Color::Red;
         }
         else
         {
            // If the number is not negative, display it in Black.
            currencyTextBox->ForeColor = Color::Black;
         }
      }
      catch ( Exception^ ) 
      {
         // If there is an error, display the text using the system colors.
         currencyTextBox->ForeColor = SystemColors::ControlText;
      }
   }
private void currencyTextBox_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   try
   {
      // Convert the text to a Double and determine if it is a negative number.
      if(double.Parse(currencyTextBox.Text) < 0)
      {
         // If the number is negative, display it in Red.
         currencyTextBox.ForeColor = Color.Red;
      }
      else
      {
         // If the number is not negative, display it in Black.
         currencyTextBox.ForeColor = Color.Black;
      }
   }
   catch
   {
      // If there is an error, display the text using the system colors.
      currencyTextBox.ForeColor = SystemColors.ControlText;
   }
}
Private Sub currencyTextBox_TextChanged(sender As Object, _ 
  e As EventArgs) Handles currencyTextBox.TextChanged
   Try
      ' Convert the text to a Double and determine if it is a negative number.
      If Double.Parse(currencyTextBox.Text) < 0 Then
         ' If the number is negative, display it in Red.
         currencyTextBox.ForeColor = Color.Red
      Else
         ' If the number is not negative, display it in Black.
         currencyTextBox.ForeColor = Color.Black
      End If
   Catch
      ' If there is an error, display the text using the system colors.
      currencyTextBox.ForeColor = SystemColors.ControlText
   End Try
End Sub
