Validating during keypress

The following code example uses the derived class Text Box and validates an e-mail address that the user enters.If the e-mail address is not in the standard format (containing "@" and "."), the validation fails, an Error Provider icon is displayed, and the event is canceled.But in the real world, you need to handle unexpected problems when your code is running.The user might delete a critical file or enter invalid data.The application includes a Text Box along with several other controls that allow you to move focus from the Text Box. Auto Size = True Dim panel As New Flow Layout Panel() panel. The Key Press event of the main Form consumes '1', '4', and '7', and the Key Press event of the Text Box consumes '2', '5', and '8' while displaying the remaining keys. Each new exception can preserve the information about the previous one by storing it in this property.I was very frustrated that validation was done at each time the value change.

This information should be entered as alphabetical information only, and should not contain any numeric values or any other special characters.

Working with instances of these classes allows the developer to provide robust error-handling solutions. NET Framework provides two general classes or exceptions that derive from the common An exception associated with the exception whose Inner Exception property you are accessing.

This is helpful when a series of exceptions are involved.

This example requires that a Text Box and Error Provider control have been created on a form.

Whilst entering data into textboxes via your Microsoft Access forms, you may need to validate certain data against that which is acceptable.

Compare the Message Box output when you press a number key while the Text Box has focus with the Message Box output when you press a number key while focus is on one of the other controls.
