    Combobox, eanabling and Tabs (2003/SP3)

    Hi All,

    I am building a word form but for numerous reasons I am not using Form Fields but rather controls from the controlBox directly on the form. All works well with the exception of when i disable the comboBox. In this case the user can still tab to it but not tab out of it.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

    Regards
    Ross

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Try setting the Locked property of the combo box to True and the Enabled property to True. The user still won't be able to select something from the combo box but it will be possible to tab out of it.

    Thanks for the prompt reply Hans,

    I tried this but when I disable the combobox I still can't tab out of it. The solution I have put in is to Lock the ComboxBox and change the forecolor for Gray making it look disabled

    Thanks again for your assistance

    You cannot tab out of the combo box if you disable it, so you should leave it enabled.
