Remove focus from a control?

5 posts in this topic

Hi, how do I remove focus from a control?

I'm pretty sure that the last control you create will be automatically given focus, so if you start pressing keys and your control is something which doesn't take input (for instance a label), you will hear windows' 'ding' sound (on windows 7 at least).

If you don't understand what I'm saying, create a GUI and put a label in it, then run the script and start pressing keys when the window is focused.

Is it possible to prevent this (automatically give focus to last created control)?

Khryus,

Just use GUICtrlSetState($cId, $GUI_FOCUS) to set the focus to a suitable control as the final line before showing the GUI. :)

That would be a nice workaround if I had any suitable controls, but I don't think I'm going to have any in my GUI :(

Would it still work if I set it to an InputBox which was outside the GUI size or invisible?

Khryus,

I do not see why not. Give it a try and let us know the result. :)

Well, thanks for the quick reply. It works ;)

Guess I'll spend more time thinking about it next time :)
