Tabbing in RichEditBox

Author: i2stiller@gmx.de (istiller)

Hi Freaks A colleague of mine implements a RichEditBox. Beside a few minor problems he runs into a "big" problem How to leave the EditBox by TAB-key? The EditBox grabs the TAB-key and manipulates the RTF-text  by inserting the TAB-char. Is there any way to prevent this and pass the TAB-Key to UnifAce so it can trigger NEXT-trigger? If I'm look into documentation, the "NativeKey"-property does not cover this, or? My solution would be to create a new shortcut in INI-file to fire ^NEXT If we have to do so, what is the preferable char-combination? [  ]  CRTL-TAB [  ]  ALT-TAB [  ]  ALT-K ... Ingo

  1. Under Windows ALT+TAB is already in use: ALT+TAB: Switch between open programs Perhaps CTRL+SHIFT+TAB would be possible (even if this demands crossing hands)

    On my keybord CTRL+SHIFT+TAB is very simple to type! They are on top of each other: with a single (left) hand using 3 fingers it's immediate! Is rthis shortcut applicable for HTML widget also? Gianni

    Hi Ingo, my vote is for ALT-TAB, being an "alternative" Tab, to be excluded only if specific tech reasons are killing it. Gianni

  4. Unfortunately the widget property unifacekeys is not available for the rich edit widget. Can't think of a workaround.
