How to prevent a Tab to receive a focus when I click on it

5 posts in this topic

I don't want my Tabs to receive focus when I click on them. I tried $TCS_FOCUSNEVER, but it may not be what needs to be done, because Tabs still do receive focus.

$tab=GUICtrlCreateTab (10,10, 200,100, $TCS_FOCUSNEVER)

The above doesn't do it :-(

I'm assuming you want the focus to be on the first item in the tabbed area after the tab is clicked but the focus is actually on the tab. You could just assign focus to the control you want active after the tab is clicked.

Case $msg = $tab1
  ControlFocus("title","text",$controltoreceivefocus)

Edit: added GuiCtrlSetState

Thanks. I did try a couple of days ago an approach with Case $msg = $tab1, but for some reason the Case $msg = $tab1 never seem to work.

Case $msg = $tab1
     msgbox(0,"","test")

The msgbox never pops up when I click the tab (no matter where I click).

Yes, I posted it here first, though. After one day of no reply I re-posted it to the "General" forum section (where you replied). The (correct) solution provided by you I don't think can be used in my case unfortunately because the tab control has to be the first control created in my GUI.
