Hi KK,

I tried with a text boxe(textbox1)in windows forms.
When textbox1 lost its focus, the content in the textboxt1 is selected

Sample code for you:
private void textBox1_Leave(object sender, EventArgs e)
            //Selects the content in the first control  
Hope this will help.
Happy programming!!!!
You have to add Onfocus event in each textbox and in the event handler code
set all text selected as follows:
<asp:textbox onfocus=";" id="txt1" runat="server" xmlns:asp="#unknown" />
