Posted by ScaryGuy [send private reply] at March 18, 2002, 07:58:11 PM well, unfortunatly its not, its like the main window loses focus, and I can't grab the WM messages from the edit boxes.
Posted by taubz [send private reply] at March 18, 2002, 09:52:04 PM You may have to set a Window's style on the edit boxes so that it can receive the focus or is tab-stoppable. (Educated guess.)
Posted by ScaryGuy [send private reply] at March 22, 2002, 01:47:41 AM Thanks all for your help, I've set the parent window EX style to WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT and the childs to WS_TABSTOP, yet nothing still happens. I just get the default beep.

In the editor, just click on Layout->Tab Order then click on the controls in the order you want them to cycle. If you're just editing the resource file, I'm not sure what the syntax is, but I'm sure you can look it up on the Internet.
