Problem:

When running a Visual COBOL Windows Forms Application and clicking into a textbox control a space appears in the first character of the textbox. How do I get rid of this leading space character?

Resolution:

This most likely has to do with how you are intializing the text box text property. Are you initializing the field using something like:

set textbox1::text to " "

This is different than initializing it to the empty value which is two quotes without a space separating them.  Instead, try using:

set textbox1::text to ""
