Unable to move focus to another field

I have a VS.NET 2003 Visual Basic form which keeps hanging. It does not
appear to matter what textbox I am on. When trying to edit the field I
cannot move focus from this field to another. Clicking buttons etc. does
nothing and the focus remains with the field I had been editing. The text
boxes are bound to a record in a SQL database.

I sounds to me like you have an error in your databinding code.
When you send the information back to the SQL server, it might
be causing an error. It will hang until it gets a response back
from the server, or times out. If you have set validation code
for the fields, you might be getting the focus put back to the
textbox because your information is not passing validation.
I suggest reviewing your code and trying to find out if an error
occurred. You might try stepping through your code and finding
out where the form hangs. Good luck!

I'm struggling with the JavaScript blur event. I have an activex control that I need to interact with when a window loses focus, namely to instruct it to give up control of a barcode scanner so that the application being brought foreward can take control. It has been my observation that when I set the window.onblur function, the window will gain focus and then immediately lose focus (blur) to the first field, button, or whatever that is...

This is a re-post of a problem I have been struggling with for some time now. I'm sure I'm doing something silly! I have a data entry form with text boxes bound to a query. The user can enter data into the text boxes using a barcode scanner. The data is checked against an underlying table to see if the barcode is valid. If the user scans the correct data everything is fine. If the user scans data that is not contained in the...

I can click on another field in the same record, and focus moves... but when I click on a field in the next record,...

Hi all I have a combo-box control which I've set as a required field. It's a date and uses a calendar as coded below. All works fine unless the user deletes a pre-existing value (leaving a 0-length string I guess) and then clicks in the Insertion control. This results in Runtime error '2110' with the message that "can't move the focus to the control Calendar0" I think this is because I've made Insertion a required field - certainly the...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
