Jump automatically to next column in DBGrid
Posted on 2002-04-07
One of my Delphi 5 applications has a DBGrid where article numbers should be entered. All article numbers are exactly 6 characters long.
What I want is, when a user enters an article number in the DBGrid, the cursor in the DBGrid automatically jumps to the next column when 6 characters have been entered. As far as I can see, all events in the DBGrid or in the Query are triggered when the Enter key is pressed. But I don't want to wait until the user presses the Enter key. As all article numbers are 6 characters long the DBGrid must automatically jump to the next column when the 6 characters are entered. And because this next column contains always 1 character, the DBGrid should jump to the third column when 1 character is entered in this column (without pressing the Enter key !!).
Is there a way to do this?
