  • To make the example put two textboxes on a form (multiline - true) and copy the code. Type in the top box and the translation is shown in the bottom.

    Public Class Form6
        Private Sub Form6_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            TextBox1.Font = New Font("arial", 12, FontStyle.Bold)
            TextBox2.Font = New Font("Wingdings", 12, FontStyle.Bold)
        End Sub
        Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
            TextBox2.Text = TextBox1.Text
        End Sub
    End Class

  • Hi,

    Do you solve the issue?I think tommytwotrain provided a good way, it can help you.And you also can use button to trigger.

     Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            TextBox2.Text = TextBox1.Text
        End Sub

    Best Regards,
