Ws_tabstop On Edit Control

5 posts in this topic

Do you think it is a good idea to force WS_TABSTOP on edit control? :D

This was one of my dearest stumbling blocks. You can tab INTO an Edit, but not OUT of one. So, I had 2 options. Create complicated code to setfocus to the next control when TAB is pressed, or change things so that TAB would actually insert a tav into the Edit. I chose the latter.

Thanks,

102.23 do the same. If nobody find an easy solution I will stay as is. :D

Hmm, in Aut2Exe you can tab between edit controls OK and that has just basic dialog handling. I've not looked at the gui code closely but is it not just a custom dialog?

In my opinion, tabbing out of input (Controls without ES_MULTILINE) makes sense, since it's unlikely that you will need to insert a tab into just a single line edit control. But in the multiline edit controls, inserting a tab should actually insert a tab character since people might use multiline edit's for word processing.

It is working on input if you don't use GuiMsg(0) just GuiMsg()
