Sort TextBox by position in VB

Sort TextBox by position in VB

Sort TextBox in order by position inside a Winform is not a build in function inside Visual Basic or inside Visual Studio. For a long time, I had to place them in order inside my Winform or renumber the TabIndex properties once my form is completed. It is a pain in the ass. So I decided to build a small function for everyone who reads this.
I haven’t made a code to complicate. The code is good enough for a normal amount of TextBox inside a form. If your form contains over 100 TextBox, your might change the type of sorting for a faster algorithm.

Install Windows 8.1 Preview on VirtualBox

Install Windows 8.1 Preview on VirtualBox

Upgrade Windows, get upgrade to Windows8.


I want to test Microsoft Windows 8.1 Preview x64 on Oracle VirtualBox for many reasons. First, I know that this version is only for testing and there will be no upgrade once the test period is over. Also, no commercial release will be able to be installed over this special version. If you have a real machine, you cold give it a try.

If you haven’t downloaded ISO version, I will suggest getting it from here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/preview-download
