I want to create a new OCX, which includes just a textbox. How is it possible, to define the Tabstop - Property in the UserControl?
In my opinion the UserControl does not have a Tabstop - Property. And the Textbox in the UC has one. If I offer the Property, the UC does not react in a testprogram.

Thanks for your help.

This should works as you described. Set both the tabstop of the user control and the edit box to true and you should have no problems

OK, it works. But if I try to set the Tabstop - Property of the TextBox in the UC to False by sourcecode, the UC has got still a Tabstop in a testprogramm.
Sorry for my bad english.

In that case you should set CanGetFocus to false
or try to set extender.tabstop = false

Try changing the ForwardFocus property, this should fix the problem.
