I have been making a phone and i am not allowed to use the keyboard so i have to use the buttons to enter text into a field.  Just like a mobile phone, so far i have been able to place "A" "B" and "C" in to the field but they replace each other please help.  All the number buttons that i have used are Array buttons.  

thank you

You mean you insert text into a textbox? If so, to prevent the old information to be removed you can use code like this

Text1.Text = Text1.Text & new_information


Text1.SelStart = Len(Text1.Text)
Text1.SelText = new_information

Put a timer that will be activated on the click of the command and that will expire after 2 secons, on the second click if the timer is still active then u clear the character and insert the next one, if it's expired then u concat the string...

if u need more info post it...
