navigate form with arrow keys

P: n/a
Gil
hello.
i would like to navigate my form with arrow keys by jumping to the next
control or previous control when ever i hit the up,down, left or right
key.
this works fine as long as i do not click on the field with my mouse or
do not type anything in the field. if i do either of those the key will
no longer jump to the next control, but rather be stuck on the current
control.
i know you can hit tab or enter as an alternative, but i would also
like to have the option to use arrow keys for navigation.
any ideas?
thanks

You can also use code to do this, but you would have to define custom
code for every control on every form you want this behavior to occur on.
