Form In Taskbar Blinking... vb6
Posted on 2004-11-18
I have a samll popup form (stays always on top). When I click on a open worksheet, this form becomes dim (in active). Now, when user moves the cursor back over a control on this popup form (with out clicking of course), ControlTip Text doesn't show (simply because the form hasn't received the focus). To make sure taht ControlTip Text shows, I have to click on the form first and then move on a control to be able to see ControlTip Texts.
I added me.SetFocus to mouse move event of the control to cause the form to receive the focus and user doesn't have to click on the form.
Now, as soon as I move the cursor over this (in active) form, form's icon in the task bar starts blinking. I end up clicking on the form anway.
Question, is there a way to avoid this click on the form.
