Disable textboxes without graying them out! (NO API)

This article will allow you to enable/disable a textbox using a picture box to control it.

Original Author: Carroll Dearstone


1. Start Visual Basic.

2. Then, start a new project.

3. Next, Add a picturebox control to form and make it flat and the same backcolor as the form backcolor.

4. After you have added the picture box you will need to add a textbox and put it in the picture box. (NOTE: NOT OVER IT BUT INSIDE IT)

5. Make the picturebox control disabled to disable typing in the textbox without graying it out, and make it enabled to type in the text box.

If you have read this article, then thanks for reading it.
