Checkbox and selectnextcontrol


K

kiwisurfer in UK

When selecting a Checkbox using the SelectNextControl() method, i've noticed
that the checkbox does not display the focus rectangle.

By writing a simple application with a button and two checkboxes (where the
checkboes have a tab index value greater than the button's), invoking the
SelectNextControl() method from the button click event handler, silently
moves focus to the first checkbox, but no focus rectangle is displayed.

Pressing TAB once, moves the focus to the second checkbox, which can be seen
as the focus rectangle IS displayed.

Any suggestions on how to get the focus rectangle to display for a checkbox
when using the SelectNextControl() method to move to it initially?

Perhaps you could try faking a click/unclick operation on the selected
checkbox by calling PerformClick() twice, thereby getting it to display the
focus rect? This of course assumes you don't have a lot of code behind the
checkbox's click handler.

Try adding these 2 lines in the forms Load event as a work around

SendKeys.Send("{TAB}+{TAB}")
Me.Refresh()

I suspect the original poster no longer cares after two years. Do you see

I've given up. It seems EggHead Cafe is the new AOL when it comes to
admitting twits to the Internet. Only now they're admitting them to USENET!

Yes, I did notice the date. Hopefully my post will help those that arrive here in the future if not those who are no longer interested. Although the original post is 2 years old the bug still remains in the CheckBox control.

It is generally considered bad Netiquette to reply to old posts, and in the
fast-paced world of the Internet, even a few weeks in considered old, let
alone a couple of years. You'll receive far more flak for doing so than
praise.

Um, that's hardly true at all. If there is something relevant to add to a
thread - - even after the fact, useful information is always welcomed. And
a couple of weeks is not considered old when it comes to technical questions
and posting replies to them.
