Tabkey And EnterKey in Browse

How do i deal with a browse window, i need to use the EnterKey to
select a record but it is acting like a TabKey. I want to be able to scroll down and hit Enter and then it picks that highlighted record. But it jus acts like a Tab

RE: Tabkey And EnterKey in Browse


That's because you have enabled the Enter to Tab option in the global properties. To overcome this, you have to exclude the browse control from "Enter to Tab" operations by choosing "Windows Behavior" on the procedure properties page and choosing "Exclude Controls". I normally add all List Boxes & Buttons to this list.

thanks ShankarJ. But ive tried that and its not working, ive also tried using a template but its not working. The app was done in C4, but i am converting to C6.1EE or C7Prof. the enterkey jus doesnt seem to work, even in message boxes i have to click or press Spacebar

RE: Tabkey And EnterKey in Browse


Have you tried it on a different PC i.e. in case the problem is local to your PC? Have you debugged the application to see what is happening? Have you checked the generated CLW for clues on solving the problem?

If you can make a demo app demonstrating the problem, you can send it to me to check it.
