How to shift focus from one input box to other input box.

Recommended Posts


I have created  two input boxes. I need to give input by scanning the bar code in the input box, after scanning the bar code the pointer should automatically need to shift second input box .

Configure your barcode scanner to append (suffix code) a TAB to the end of the scanned code.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Or use ControlFocus() like this:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 530, 322, 192, 114)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 208, 64, 121, 21)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 208, 112, 121, 21)
$h_input2 = GUICtrlGetHandle($Input2)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("OK", 336, 216, 75, 25)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel", 176, 216, 75, 25)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Input1:", 152, 64, 36, 17)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Input2:", 152, 112, 36, 17)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Input1
