Hi!

I'll try to explain the best I can what I want.

I have an application that includes a dll. All the forms must be inside the dll and then placed inside the exe file.

There is a very important restriction:
* The behavior must be just like if the form was inside the executable all along, I mean, if the user presses the tab key it must jump from the currently focused control into the next, passing, when the time comes, inside all controls of the form, as well as if there is a flat button, the behavior must be the same.

I believe that's the only thing I can remember right now that it's givving me a lot of problems!

Thanks in advance

Joao Santos

hi geobul,

I've seen the thread, and as you can see it, it does try to find an answer, but it doens't get a final one. What WorkShop_Alex tried to do, is very similar to my needs, but you final answer agrees with him that there are some things not working.

I've downloaded his demo project in order to test it myself, and, although I haven't tested it deeply, since right now, I'm a little busy, I've noticed that the Alt+Tab issue did not work for me as well, the tab order was fixed and the form focus wasn't right for me as well.


Did you find any solutions for those problems yet?

regards,

Joao Santos

I'm sorry I haven't worked on that since then. Alt+Tab doesn't work at my place also (the exe disapears from the list) but the form focus is OK for me (using my demo there).
