Clearing Text Controls using VB.Net with For Loop Statement

In this tutorial, you will learn how to Clearing Text Controls using VB.Net with For Loop Statement easily without making any long codes just to clear all the controls inside your form.

First you need to open your Microsoft Visual Studio IDE and create new project, name it as you please.

Then, drag the objects like textbox and combobox in your blank form as many as you like.

The Properties of the TextBox Control

The following are some of the commonly used properties of the TextBox control −

Property Description

2. AutoCompleteCustomSource Gets or sets a custom System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection to use when the AutoCompleteSourceproperty is set to CustomSource.

Next, create a button. After creating a button or dragged from the toolbox, double click that textbox and insert this line of code.

You can also apply this line of code if you want to clear comboboxes, here’s the sample line of code with clearing all combobox in your form:
