    In .NET this .focus() method doesn't seem to be a member function of the textbox class. Are you sure thats right?

    Ok when I said textbox.focus() "textbox" should be whatever you named your textbox. e.g.

    Textbox1.Focus()
    MyTextBox.Focus()

    And yes I am positive that this is the case in VB.NET.

    Good Luck

    Not sure what your question may be. Are you saying that you are trying to set focus to a rich edit control and if so what code did you try if not then what are you asking?

    Code:
        Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            Dim objWordApp As Word.Application
            objWordApp = New Word.Application
            Dim DoubleSpace As String = Chr(32) + Chr(32)
            Dim objDoc As Word.Document
            'Open an existing document.
            objWordApp.Documents.Open("D:\XYZ-23-08-20\Name7.docx")
            'Find and replace some text.
            objDoc.Content.Find.Execute(FindText:="Name:", ReplaceWith:="Name: " + TextBox1.Text)
            objDoc.Content.Find.Execute(FindText:="Address:", ReplaceWith:="Address: " + TextBox2.Text)
            objDoc.Content.Find.Execute(FindText:=" ", ReplaceWith:=DoubleSpace, Replace:=Word.WdReplace.wdReplaceAll)
            'Save and close the document.
            objWordApp.Documents.Item(1).Save()
            objWordApp.Documents.Close(Word.WdSaveOptions.wdDoNotSaveChanges)
            objWordApp.Quit()
            objWordApp = Nothing
       End Sub

    @amroasm, please start a new thread for any new questions rather than using this 18 year thread.
