View Full Version : New to c#

10-25-2007, 12:26 AM
I've made a program that converts a string to ascii and presents it in a new form.

My problem is that I can't get the click event to do what I want.
I want, when you click on the texbox that it will select the text inside it but every attemp I do to accomplish this somehow doesn't work.

Please take a look at my code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsApplication1
public partial class Form1 : Form
Form newForm = new Form();
public Form1()

private void btnConvert_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
TextBox textbox;
string text = txtValue.Text;
for (int i = 0; i < text.Length; i++)
textbox = new TextBox();
textbox.Text = Convert.ToInt16(text[i]).ToString();
textbox.Location = new Point(0, i * 20);
textbox.Name = "textbox" + i;
textbox.Click += new System.EventHandler(selectThis(this));

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

public void selectThis(object obj)

obj.SelectionStart = 0;
obj.SelectionLength = obj.TextLength;

try that
