Once you click input control, put something in it and afterwards that inputcontrol loses focus and if you later click on checkbox control in another tab it will turn ON the keyboard focus of the last input control that was focused.

Try it yourself and you will see

Firstly don't bump your thread less than 24 hours :huh2: Secondly, it would be best to have some code where you're getting the problem, because 95% of the someone will try to replicate a supposed problem and funnily enough there isn't one!

Aktonius,

What you suggest is an AutoIt bug is normal Windows behaviour. When you reselect "TabSheet1" focus is given to the only control on the page - actioning the checkbox on the other tabsheet has nothing to do with it. :huh2:

If you want to prevent the text in the input being selected, then you have to tell Windows that this is what you want to do:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <TabConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiEdit.au3>

$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 405, 294, 302, 218)

$Tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(8, 8, 369, 273)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)

$TabSheet1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet1")
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 48, 72, 121, 21)

$TabSheet2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("TabSheet2")
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_SHOW)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Checkbox1", 48, 64, 97, 17)

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Tab1 ; Tab clicked <<<<<<<<<<<<<
            Switch GUICtrlRead($Tab1)
                Case 0 ; Tabsheet1 was clicked <<<<<<<<<<<<<
                    _GUICtrlEdit_SetSel($Input1, -1, -1) ; Send the cursor to the end of the text <<<<<<<<<<<<<
        EndSwitch
    EndSwitch
WEnd

All clear? ;)

Another trick to avoid setting focus to a control on a window is to create a 1x1 empty label someplace and set focus to that. I've also been know to create other controls with the position outside the GUI window and set focus to that.

EDIT:

I've noticed a few times now that you have quickly come to the conclusion that something you don't understand makes you jump to the conclusion that it's a bug. There may still be a couple of bugs floating around from the last release version but you can bet that most actual bugs have been reported by now.

You can always look through Trac to see what has been reported and what has been fixed.

Its clear what you mean, thanks for explaining.

But then again even this is not a bug i still think its stupid and pointless Windows behavior.

Why would windows focus any control in the entire Tab. So even if you say have only checkboxes in tab2 it will keyboard input-focus control from tab1 when you click checkbox in tab2. Really weird and arrogant by Windows.

On the end i had to make invisible dummy control which i focus to avoid this.

Another trick to avoid setting focus to a control on a window is to create a 1x1 empty label someplace and set focus to that. I've also been know to create other controls with the position outside the GUI window and set focus to that.

This is the first time i ever said i think something in Autoit is a bug and even its not i think this is at least pointless by Windows.
