It works like every Text property, didn't it?

It a normal string so you can access it like every other String property.
What exactly is your problem???

Sorry, i works now.

But when i use the TextChanged event it will not work. Fx:

Private Sub Scintilla1_TextChanged(ByVal... ......
       TextBox1.Text = Scintilla1.Text
End Sub

I havn't tried your Code because I'm not that good at VB.NET but in my opinion it should work.
The event is a normal Controlevent.

Describe your problem in more detail, I still don't understand it ;-)

I just mean that the TextChanged event of the Scintilla component doesn't work:

C# Code:
private void scintilla1_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
            textBox1.Text = scintilla1.Text;

VB 2008 Code:
Private Sub Scintilla1_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Scintilla1.TextChanged
        TextBox1.Text = Scintilla1.Text
 End Sub

If someone asked me what would happen if one of theese events was fired i would say that the text in the TextBox1 would be the same as in the Scintilla1, but it doesn't, nothing happens.

I have the same problem.Event TextChanged does'nt work in C#.

Yes, it seems like TextChanged still don't work. It was discussed there:

So, only way is to use DocumentChanged event, only it's not very comfortable, as it's used more then one time when you type one symbol for example.

I completely agree that the TextChanged event should fire. I've created work item 21053 to address this oversight.
