Check to match sure the textbox is matching.  Without seeing your match rules it is hard to say for sure, but your code is assuming that the textbox is matched which may not be the case.  Add an IsCreated or WaitForCreate test before you set it and then display a MessageBox if IsCreated is false or WaitForCreate fails. 

One other thing to try, put a break point before you set the textbox.  With dialogs such as this, sometimes it you will need to wait for everything to settle.  The dialog may actually match before it becomes visible and the controls are still being created.  If it works with a break point, that would indicate you have a timing issue and need to wait longer for the controls to be there.  WaitForCreate should resolve that.

Use the WaitForEvent method and it works perfectly.
