C# .NET Textbox GotFocus Event

When one Googles to find out sample code for a C# .Net textbox gotFocus() event, the first few search results are not that explicit.  So without further ado, here is a sample:

In the Form_Load method:

textBox2.GotFocus += new System.EventHandler(this.textBox2_GotFocus);

And then in the body of the form class you create this method:

private void textBox2_GotFocus(Object sender, EventArgs e)
          //  do something here

Hope this helps someone.


  1. Great example! very simple and powerful

  2. So, where is Form_Load method and what's //do something?
