GUICtrlCreateCombo...OnEvent triggered by keyboard input...

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In this routine, when a date is selected from the calendar, it is inserted into input1 field and focus goes to combo1. While in the combo field, keys 1,3,7 and the arrow keys when depressed will cause OnEvent to be triggered. Any thoughts as to how to prevent this from happening.

Is somehow using the HotKeySet() the only answer?

Any instruction will be greatly appreciated.

If you are talking about while clicked in the calendar - I do not think this is possible. My reason, have you ever tried to use the arrow key while on a web page and nothing happens until you give it focus. But one of the many gurus in this forum might be able to help.

All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

After clicking on the calendar, focus is passed to the combo field. It is while focused on the combo field that the keystrokes mentioned will cause the OnEvent action to occur. I am currently working on getting the HotKeSet() to block the keys, but I have to get them switched on and off at the orrect time.
