Hi Everyone

Why when I Tab in a Form would it go the to the Control Label Vice the actual Control?

The Control is a Yes/No Checkbox

Any help appreciated.

Hope this helps?

Hi Larry

I have double checked the Tab Order and AutoTab and it still just goes to the Label and nor the Control.

Hi Larry

Yes been into the Tab Control of the Form and it is listed correctly and it Tabs correctly.

Only anomaly is that it tabs to the Label of just the 1 Control out of 12
Very strange indeed

What is the Left property of the checkbox? What is the Right property of the label? Can you post it?

Hi Larry

Did an afterupdate on the Control prior to the troublesome one and it still goes to the Label.

I am going to try changing it from a Chekbox to a Combobox and see what happens.

My theory is that if the right edge of the label is further to the right than the left edge of the checkbox then maybe it just appears like the tab is stopping on the label. This is assuming the label is to the left of the checkbox. This is just a theory.

I made a mistake in my last post because there is no right property. What I was aiming at is the right edge of the label. This would be the left property plus the width property. But I guess you can check to see if there is any overlap.
