Good grief, your health is more important! No worries, I have it working on a tablet. I've spent too much time on this to figure out how to change the device to tablet mode in code. I'm just going to tell the users to switch into tablet mode to enter data on a tablet. There is a separate form they use for entry on a tablet vs entry on a desktop. I could not resize the keyboard on the tablet.

I eventually modified the code at the msdn link daniel gave. It works on a laptop or a tablet (provided they are put into tablet mode).

Your code would only work on a tablet, but wouldn't work on a laptop put into tablet mode.

Hi Joan,

Interesting as i have the exact same code running on a Toshiba laptop running Windows 10 Enterprise.
I really can't figure this out as different versions of Windows behave differently with some things so a universal set of code can only be done when first checking what version of Windows is being used. I have done this before in a post I just have to find it.
