Up Down Arrows as TAB Key


I'm tring to make the down arrow act as a tab key and the up arrow act as
like (-TAB.).

I have this for the down arrow but nothing happens.

Protected Overrides Function ProcessDialogKe y(ByVal keyData As Keys) As
MyBase.ProcessD ialogKey(keyDat a)
If keyData = System.Windows. Forms.Keys.Down Then
keyData = System.Windows. Forms.Keys.Tab
End If
End Function

Your new code should work now because you are no longer changing the
key that was passed in by value. You're making a new vairable MyKey
and then (recursively sort of) calling the function again but with
MyKey instead of the original key. I think this should work.

Not exactly sure about your other problem but maybe since it's a text
field it's different. Maybe the text field has focus and is expecting
you to type something into it, and it thinks the arrow key is just like
any other key you might want to type, like regular letters, etc. You
might have to make this a special case and put some code into the event
(if it has one) for that control that gets fired off when the value

Hi. I've just installed 2.3.4 from the source on a linux box. In the interactive mode, up/down arrows do not work. When I press 'up' python prints '^[[A' and down gives '^[[B' What is wrong? Thanks, Gerald

In a <select> drop-down, the onchange event isn't called when scrolling through the dropdown using the mouse-wheel and when crossing over a new <optgroup>. Using the example below, notice how the onchange event isn't called when mouse wheel scrolling between A3 and B1, but it works properly when scrolling between A1 and A2.

Hi all, In our database we have a form with a subform. If this subform contains some records, but they al 'fit' in this subform one can scroll down with the mouse. But one CAN NOT SCROLL UP with the mouse again. If one wants to see the top records again in this subform you have to use the vertical scroll bar (arrows)!! (if the subform contains many records, so one can use the vertical scroll bar) the mouse wheel is working down AND UP.

I have a Continous Form with 5 or so fields for each record, in a line from left to right. Because the Contuous Form lists several records at once, the form looks pretty much like a Datasheet. So, I'd like to be able to navigate it like one when using the up/down/left/right arrow keys of the keyboard. I have the fields set with tab stop settings so that hitting the tab key moves one field to the right. The problem I'm having is when I...

I'm trying to use an owner draw ListBox by subscribing to the DrawItem event to draw my custom control as an item in the ListBox. This event is triggered when I drag the scroll button but NOT when I click the up/down arrows on the scroll bar of the ListBox. How do I handle the user clicking the up/down arrows? Anybody have any ideas? Jim

I want to create arrows using lines on a picture in the picture box. On clicking the button "btnShowAll", the image is loaded and the lines drawn. "RGSShowAll()" calls "DrawObjs()" which does the actual drawing work. But after displaying all the arrows in a flick, the arrows disappers. I have debugged and came to know that the "Paint" event of the picturebox is refreshing the image, so the work done on the CreateGraphics created object is...

Assuming I find some code that allows you to drag graphics around the page, ideally, I want the relationship between two graphics to be displayed as linked arrows. For example (imagine this in graphical form): icon1 <----------> icon2 Then the user can drag icon1 around the page and the arrow will still be "connected" to to both. How would you go about doing something like that?
