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  
            textBox1.SelectAll();
        }
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="javascript:this.select();" id="txt1" runat="server" xmlns:asp="#unknown" />
