Issue moving cursor using TAB between GuiCtrlCreateInput

6 posts in this topic

Without my posting any code examples, is there anything that would prevent autoit from moving the cursor from one GuiCtrlCreateInput to another?

I have a MDI application where on one of the windows, there are GuiCtrlCreateInput boxes to fill out, and when you hit TAB, where it should move to the next line, it only highlights what you wrote, and doesn't move anywhere.

 

The code I have is thousands of lines long, and currently only work in my companies environment, and it would take forever to change everything just to post it here, so I cant post a decent example.

What the behavior you want to get?

To prevent moving cursor to next input, or to allow it?

If you want to allow it, it's may be a bug, but you need to post the script, or at least some snippet which produce the problem.

If you want to prevent it, I need to say it's strange and different with lots of applications. Do you sure you want?

I would like the tab to go to the next field, and the form is very generic, like something you would make in KODA. The program is a MDI, and I used KODA for the GUI I would like the tabs to work in, and when you run that same GUI by itself, it tabs along just fine. When you run it included in the program, TAB doesnt work at all. 

While I cant post the code, here are some possible relevant entries that may or may not have something to do with this issue:

Opt("TrayAutoPause", 0)
_WinAPI_RedrawWindow($hMainGUI)
global $Pic2 = GUICtrlCreatePic("", 0, 0, 425, 80)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
;This just sets a BG picture
GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "WM_COMMAND")
; This just helps keep an eye on a form field for typed keys and performs actions as needed. This is not the same form as the tab issue
; the main loop uses this format:

While 1
  $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $nMsg[1]
    
            Case $button1
                    ;do stuff
    EndSwitch
Wend

Some of these lines may or may not be relevant, but if someone is familiar with Tabbing issues, and sees anything I have above that has been known to cause issues, that's what I am looking to determine.

Kovacic,

As you can see from this example, inputs in MDI children should honour TabStop operations without problem:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

GUISetState()

$hChild = GUICreate("Child", 400, 400, 50, 50, Default, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $hGUI)

$cInput_1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20)
$cInput_2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 40, 200, 20)
$cInput_3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 70, 200, 20)
$cInput_4 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 100, 200, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd
Is there anything significantly different in the way in which you have coded the main and child GUIs or the input controls within your script? Have you added any special styles? :huh:

Can you post the code that you use to made the GUI and all child windows, as well as all the inputs you've created. I'm thinking Melba is correct in saying it could be a style definition that is making this behaviour.

Also, I think a screenshot is not going to help us to much, unless it is a gif that shows the problem. Even then, the code is most important. ;)
