Hi All,

I have written a control which is a message box, the message box IS NOT a form it is a panel with controls contained inside.

What is the best way to prevent focus change when i show the message box?, i know there are other ways to achieve this on the desktop but i am using windows mobile for this project.

In effect i want to show the panel that has 3 buttons and make the sub routine wait until the user has made a selection, also i need to stop the user from pressing buttons in the background behind the panel (message box)

I am using VB2005 with CF2.

Thanks
Zeus

Quite difficult functionality to be honest. You can place the rest of the controls (the background controls) in panels as well and then disable those panels when this messagebox is shown. This way, the focus would also remain on this panel i believe because nothing else would be clickable.

I have found an excellent solution i conjured up over the weekend, i am using a do loop with a do application events until i return an integer defining the button pressed within the control.

Thanks for the reply though.

How do i close this post?

It would have been a good idea to close this question over the weekend when you had found the solution. This saves many volunteer experts from wasting time and effort.
