I need an event handler to "eat" the Enter event for a Windows TextBox

I have an event handler which gets called when the focus enters the control, using the Enter event. But in that event, depending on the value of some variable, I may need to set the focus somewhere else. The problem is that once my call to Focus() is called, the rest of the Enter event gets called and sets the focus to that control. But I want to the control on thecontrol where I call Focus().

Do you know how to eat the event so it will not get called?

I want to be able to call Enter for a TextBox control.

Thanks,

i might not be understanding what you want but if you don't want the rest of the event code to fire after you set focus, in it, then you can just return out of the method


return; //if void

return someBoolValue; // if bool

etc.

AWESOME! That fixed something which I think was otherwise un-fixable!

Thanks.
