    This is similiar to a question I posted last week. This is the line of code I ended up using. Do a search in Help for an explanation on how to use it.

    m_ptrCEdit = CWnd::GetNextDlgTabItem(GetFocus(), false);

    I used the accelerator table to remap the arrow keys.

    Or in a different setting:

    m_editDiameterLength.SetFocus();

    jumps the focus to the m_editDiameterLength edit box...

    It took me two days last week to get this figured out.

    'til anon,
    Lyle

    ps please let us know if it works

    how 'bout


    //Somewhere in dialog

    CWnd* pWnd = GetDlgItem( IDC_MYCONTROL );


    //****
    ....determine new location you want here
    //****
    pWnd->SetWindowPos( NULL, xLocation, yLocation, 0, 0,
    SWP_NOSIZE | SWP_SHOWWINDOW | SWP_NOZORDER );

    if you already have a control asscociated with your window such as a CButton or CEdit myControl


    //****
    ....determine new location you want here
    //****
    m_ctlMyControl.SetWindowPos( NULL, xLocation, yLocation, 0, 0,
    SWP_NOSIZE | SWP_SHOWWINDOW | SWP_NOZORDER );

    with this function you can also resize your button... of course you have to change those 0s to with and height and get rid of the SWP_NOSIZE flag....
