Updating String Indicators in "Real Time?"

Recommended Posts

Here's one that has me scratching my head...

I would like to have a string indicator show the contents of a string control and update while the string control is being edited. I've been playing around with it a bit and the 'Value Changed' event doesn't fire until the control loses focus. The 'Key Down' event might work if I tracked keystrokes during editing, but it looks fairly tricky. (And I'm not sure how I would determine initial cursor position or cases where the user changes cursor position via the mouse.)

I get the sense I'm making this much more difficult that it needs to be.

Right click on the string control and select "Update Value while typing". This will force Value Change events during edit.

I figured there had to be an easier way... thank you very much.
