Disable mouse

P: n/a
Hello,
Does anyone know how to disable the mouse on a specific form? So users are
only allowed to use keyboard controls.
Thanks already for answering.

That seems an odd request -
could you help us understand a bit more of what you want to achieve
here?

TERMINAL would be more in keeping with the theme.

Hans: Why would you want to disable the mouse? Perhaps we could
suggest an alternate solution to your problem, if we knew what is
the problem.

What I want to achieve is that users follow the right sequence, just to be
sure they do not forget any field.

The typical way to do this is to set those fields to be required in
the table design.
An alternative (in case the table fields can't be set to be required)
is to write code in the Form_BeforeUpdate to check if all "required"
fields are filled out, and to set Cancel to True if they are not.

Suppressing the mouse would not help; the user can use the Tab or
Shift+Tab key to go past a field, use an accellerator key (Alt+letter)
to jump to a field, use the Enter key to click the default push
button, use the Esc key to click the default escape button, and
Control+F4 to close the form. Among other things.

Mainstream requirements are best served with mainstream solutions.
