Hi,
I have created a dialog box with some edit boxes and fields . Now i want to use tab instead of enter key to move among these fields. Can you tell me how can i implement it? I am not in touch for the last 4 years with VC++. Some of my friend needs help can you give me a sample code for it too. What i remember is that we can define the tab orders in the wizard it self or we have to write it in an event.Pl, give me details of it.

Thanks a lot.

Press CTRL-D [or Layout->Tab Order], and the tab order is listed on the screen.  Then click on the boxes in the order you want them to respond to the TAB.

That's all there is to it - TAB moving between fields exists as standard.

Oh yeah, of course you need to be in the resource editor when you press CTRL-D :)

Normally the Tab key moves you around the dialog box and the Enter key OKs and dismisses the dialog.  So I can't understand the question.

aslExpert,

I don't mean to be picky or anything, but...

If an answer fixes your problem, and you don't have to do much else yourself, that is an A grade answer.  I've seen some guidelines around here somewhere regarding how to grade answers, but I can't find them at the moment.  [An answerer's reliability is often judged on their grades]

Just mentioning it :-)
