API tabstops

Hi, Ive tried searching the net for an example on how to use the
SendMessage API with tabstops since the program Im working with has all
the same class names and most captions are blank, Im not sure why.
Thank you.

// at the top
using System.Runtime. InteropServices ;

// after the class declaration
private const int EM_SETTABSTOPS = 0x00CB;
[DllImport("User 32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
public static extern IntPtr SendMessage(Int Ptr h, int msg, int wParam, int
[] lParam);

// in the Form_Load
int[] stops = {16};
SendMessage(thi s.textBox1.Hand le, EM_SETTABSTOPS, 1, stops);

Using the SendMessage API, I know how to set tabstops in a list box. However, the code only works if the style property of the listbox is set to 0 - Standard. I would like to set tabs in a listbox with the style set to 1 - Checkbox. Does anyone know how to achieve this? Regards, Michael Floyd

I need to display several columns of numbers in a textbox. I wish to display the columns with the decimal point position aligned vertically.

What is the best way to override the tab order in a web page? I'm trying to implement a zoom mode for part of a form, so when the zoom button is pressed that section of the form is resized to fill the entire browser window. While the user is in the zoom mode I want to stop the tab key taking them on to the next (now invisible) tabstop on the page. Ideally I want tabbing to wrap round so that tabbing forward from the last of the zoomed...

The problem is that the tabstops are in awkward places for my data. Any suggestions? Is this "by design" for the CheckedListBoxes not to respond vin

This took way to long to figure out - now that I have it working I thought I would share with the group. I've seen tons of posts with very little good answers on this seemingly simple thing that took me 2 hours to figure out! You can set tabs through RichTextBox using the cheesy SelectAll()-> SelectionTabs() method, but that only works after the text has been entered. If the user hits Enter on any line, it goes back and uses the...

Is there anyway to get a picturebox to recieve focus? I ask because I implemented a "delete" button in a picturebox (due to size constraints), but now due to accessibility reasons I need to be able to tab to the picturebox via the keyboard. Since the picturebox doesn't recieve focus the user can't get to the picturebox control. Am I missing something? This is using .NET 1.1

Hi Group, Not looking for an answer, but more of an explanation. Thinking back to those heady days when you had the time to do them, may I ask this. Exercise 1-22 asks for a program to "fold" long input lines into 2 or more shorter lines before the nth column... etc etc. Now, there are numerous anwers on the web and in the "C answer book", which includes a function to expand the tabs to blanks ( depending upon where the tab is in...
