Hi I'm just wondering if its possible to have buttons that executes code on click event without setting the button as focus.
Like in javascript we use "void 0;"

Example(I don't use a textbox in my project but dhtm editing component) :
We have an textbox and a button. Focus is on the textbox and then I press the button an click event adds "test" to the textbox. The textpointer is still blinking in the textbox.

No, but you can fake it.  In this code the button gets focus when you click it, but the click events shifts the focus to the text box.  The user nevers knows the button had focus but the program does, so the code in Command1_GotFocus executes.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Debug.Print "Button click"
    Text1.Text = "test"
    Text1.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_GotFocus()
    Debug.Print "Button got focus"
End Sub

Private Sub Form_GotFocus()
    Debug.Print "text1 got focus"
End Sub

Oops, there was a typo.  The correct code is:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Debug.Print "Button click"
    Text1.Text = "test"
    Text1.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_GotFocus()
    Debug.Print "Button got focus"
End Sub

Private Sub Text1_GotFocus()        ''' this line changed
    Debug.Print "text1 got focus"
End Sub
