Hi ! I'm using Access XP and I'm experiencing the following problems with the comboBox events: 1) If I make a selection in the drop down list using the cursor keys followed by the enter key, the "After Update" event correctly fires and my selection appears in the closed box. From that event, I then set the focus to another field, a textbox. Upon entering that field, it's "Key press" event fires and the Ascii value is 13, which is the enter key I used to make my selection in the combo. Since "Enter" is a valid entry in that specific textbox, I can hardly disregard it in the text box keypress event. Question: is there a way to sink that "enter" key before the next field get its focus ? (Preferably within the combo code itself). 2) If I use my mouse to highlight a choice in the dropdown list and then press "enter" to confim that selection, the dropdown list closes, but the combo value stays to its old value. Is this behavior normal ? 3) Once the combo box is exited (or loose focus ?), I want to assign its value to a textbox, set the focus to that textbox and then hide the combo. For example, in the after update event, I use code like this : Private Sub cbo_AfterUpdate() Debug.Print "cbo after update" With txt .Value = cbo.Value .Visible = True .SetFocus End With cbo.Visible = False Debug.Print "cbo after update exit" End Sub Tracing the events sequence in the immediate window, after selecting a value with the mouse only, I find the following : cbo after update cbo exit cbo enter txt got focus cbo after update exit cbo change Questions : a) Why do the cbo Exit and cbo Enter fire in the middle of the after update event ? Isn't the combo already the active control ? b) Why are there no "cbo lost focus" or "cbo exit" events after the text gets the focus ? Thanks in advance !
