Gets or sets a value indicating whether pressing the TAB key in a multiline text box control types a TAB character in the control instead of moving the focus to the next control in the tab order.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The Multiline property must also be true to get a TAB character in the control.
If theproperty is set to true, the user must press CTRL+TAB to move the focus to the next control in the tab order.
The following code example uses TextBox, a derived class, to create a multiline TextBox control with vertical scroll bars. This example also uses the , AcceptsReturn, and WordWrap properties to make the multiline text box control useful for creating text documents.
Public Sub CreateMyMultilineTextBox() ' Create an instance of a TextBox control. Dim textBox1 As New TextBox() ' Set the Multiline property to true. textBox1.Multiline = True ' Add vertical scroll bars to the TextBox control. textBox1.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Vertical ' Allow the RETURN key in the TextBox control. textBox1.AcceptsReturn = True ' Allow the TAB key to be entered in the TextBox control. textBox1.AcceptsTab = True ' Set WordWrap to true to allow text to wrap to the next line. textBox1.WordWrap = True ' Set the default text of the control. textBox1.Text = "Welcome!" & Environment.NewLine & "Second Line" End Sub
