Vantage 8.03.404 Customization and Tab Stops

You can use the Form Event Wizard to create the code for the form
load event.

In the Script Editor (not XML editor), beneath Module Script, in the
section:
'// Add Custom Module Level Variables Here **

is where you would Dim all your custom controls.

Create the event handler in a blank area.

I have been trying to change the tab stop on a few fields that do not
seem to apply the changes. Is there another property that controls the
tab stop setting?

I tried modifying the tab order on the job entry and engineering
workbench myself and wasn't able to get them to save either.

We wanted the tab to move from the setup times directly to the
production time entry since those were the only two fields we
modified quickly when entering jobs/BOM details operations.

If the two fields are in different group boxes it will never work. Tabbing
order is first by group box and then by fields in the group. It would
require a lot of customization to get it to do what you want.

On 403 it seemed to work but inconsistently - sometimes it 'stuck' on save and worked, sometimes it didn't.

On 404 it doesn't seem to work at all.

I just also tried setting a font to bold on an epilabel and it refused to 'stick'.

Back to your tab sequence, the only customization (of many and of which tab sequence changes were minor desired changes) - only one seems to have survived 403-404.

It used after data field value change events to SetFocus() to the next desired control field.

Try it if it really is a big issue for you.

Charles is absolutely right. Definitely try the SetFocus() technique to make it work across group boxes.

I am not working across group boxes. I am trying to turn the tab stop
off. Only part of my changes are saved. I get different results when
running multiple test on the same customization. I tried to edit the
field properties using the XML editor but kept getting errors. How do I
set the focus?

The only way I have found to effectively control the tab stop
property is to define a control of the same type (I use the same
control name as the one I want to control)

Private WithEvents txtContractNum As EpiTextBox

Then in the form load event set the control to be equal to the base
form control and set the tab stop property:

txtContractNum = CType(csm.GetNativeControlReference("2bffa487-c458-
4d83-9c4f-532eaa9ecc66"), EpiTextBox)
txtContractNum.TabStop = False

Then you need to make an event handler that will change the tab stop
property back to false when the base form sets it true:

Private Sub txtContractNum_TabStopChanged(ByVal Sender As Object,
ByVal Args As System.EventArgs) Handles txtContractNum.TabStopChanged
'// ** Place Event Handling Code Here **
If(txtContractNum.TabStop = True) then
txtContractNum.TabStop = False
End If
End Sub


Now do this for every control you really want control over :-(

So much for an easily customisable user experience....

Thanks I am fairly new at this. I looked under the object explorer tool
and the XML editor for code similar to what you posted. I am uncertain
where to make the changes you outline?



Thanks to all who replied, nice to know that it's not just me. I all
ready wasted more time than I should of thinking it was just a newbie
error. It would be nice if it worked the way it should.
