Minor converting prob. from VBA to VB

 I have written some stuff in Access, and there are a few things I haven't been able to figure out how to make happen when converting it to Visual Basic.

1.  On a form in Access, hitting ENTER will automatically tab to the next field.....hitting enter on a VB form does nothing.  In access I could tell the form how I want it to react to the ENTER key....how do I do this in VB.  Or do I have to do it with previewing the keys?

2.  I was able to get a full screen, no title bar, no task bar.....how do I do this in VB?

3.  Shortcuts on buttons also could be used without having to hit the ALT key in access.....does this work in VB?

Thanks,

 Craig

The windows standard for moving from one control to another is the TAB key. Use the Tab Index property to control the order. The Enter key is often tied to a button (eg. the OK button) by setting the default property of the button. To get a full screen, set your form's borderstyle property to none and maximize to true. To get a shortcut on a button, place a & before the appropriate letter in the caption property.
