I have this code:
private void toolStripTextBox7_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
            if (toolStripTextBox7.Text != "one" && toolStripTextBox7.Text != "two")
I want it to change the picture that moment, when user inserts "one" or "two", but this does not do it. In this case i have to write in "one" or "two" and click one more time in that box to refresh it, then it works. How to fix this?

This isn't a problem - it has to do with the order in which things happen: KeyPress occurs before the text is changed by design, so you can remove key presses if you don't want non-numeric values for example.

Try moving your code into the TextChanged event instead, which occurs after the text is changed.
