I have a richtextbox and i need to use the tab key to move the text in the box and ive figured out it has something to do with this. How can i allow the tab key be passed through....

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
Select Case KeyCode

    Case 112
        txtUDS.Locked = False
        lblStatus.Caption = "Writable"
    Case 115
        'Run Code
       
    Case 121
        Unload Me
    Case Else
        MsgBox KeyCode
End Select

End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
Me.KeyPreview = True
End Sub

You want the tab key to work in the richtextbox instead of navigating out? If yes then it has to work as I have been using this code for many years in my projects. Please change the name of the richtextbox in the code.

I am not sure why you had to turn TabStop=False as that is not required.
