Swapping between MDI children forms

Hi

In an MDI application, we can use the Ctrl-F6 to move between the children forms. How do I disable this hot key programmitcally? Is there a message I can trap for?

PS: I am creating an MDI application in Delphi and have several children, but do not want the user to be able to swap between them...

Regards
Keith

Trap the WM_CHAR message in your parent dialog. If it is CTRL-F6 then ignore the key, otherwise process the message normally.

i have looked at the WM_CHAR message, but don't know how to set chCharCode and lKeyData to look for Ctrl-F6

Can u help?

chCharCode will be set to VK_F6. Use GetKeyState(VK_CONTROL) to see if the control key is held down (using IKeyData directly is nasty)

Cheers,

Raymond.
