Alex recently helped me with catching tab on a form. (See question 20147452) Now a related question has arisen. How do I detect when the tabkey is being RELEASED on the same form? Does anyone know?

Thanks

I think, code ~ same, only 1 difference: you must use
KeyUp messages:
h file:
void __fastcall KeyUp(Word &Key, Classes::TShiftState Shift);
The .cpp
void __fastcall TForm1::KeyUp(Word &Key, Classes::TShiftState Shift)
{
 ...
}

//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#include <vcl\vcl.h>
#pragma hdrstop

#include "Unit1.h"
1. Sorry for delay, I was very busy.
2. Working code: tested with BCB4:
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#pragma resource "*.dfm"
TForm1 *Form1;
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
__fastcall TForm1::TForm1(TComponent* Owner)
     : TForm(Owner)
{
}
//---------------------------------------------------------------------------
void __fastcall TForm1::FormKeyUp(TObject *Sender, WORD &Key, TShiftState Shift)
{
  if (Key == VK_TAB)
    MessageBeep(-1); //make something

}

Hmm, I tried that code in a new blank project, and it works just like you say, BUT when I use it together with the the code you gave me in the previous question for catching tab with KeyDown,

void __fastcall TForm1::CMWantSpecialKey(TCMWantSpecialKey &Message)

...then it doesn't work anymore. So, when trying to respond to BOTH tab KeyDown and tab KeyUp using your code, only the KeyDown works. I guess something else is needed for the KeyUp in this case?

Thanks
