Seems that you are not storing/saving the updated text. Either save it or store it in a String.
2 TextBoxes (use TextBox1 to type in commands)

Public Class Form1
    Private sUpdateOfTxt2 As String = "updating content" '// stores updated text of TextBox2.

    Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
        With TextBox2
            If .ReadOnly = False Then .ReadOnly = True '// set to True if False.
            Select Case TextBox1.Text.ToLower
                Case "add" : .Text = "adding content"
                Case "delete" : .Text = "deleting content"
                Case "update" : .ReadOnly = False : .Text = sUpdateOfTxt2
                Case Else : .Text = "standby mode"
            End Select
        End With
    End Sub

    Private Sub TextBox2_TextChanged(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles TextBox2.TextChanged
        With TextBox2
            If .ReadOnly = False Then sUpdateOfTxt2 = .Text '// set text to String for storing.
        End With
    End Sub
End Class

I don't really get what you meant, will be better if you can post the code like what prnvnkmr194 said. But I would suggest that you either haven't changed the "readonly" property of the 2nd textbox or haven't saved last progress. There is a chance that you got logical error as well.


I had similar problems trying to change the text on a button...
saveButton.Text = "Save"

I ended up adding the line...

and my problem is resolved.
