    tabstopping

    I am using resources to load the main window, which is a dialog. I have several edit boxes that all have the tabstop set to true, and one has Group set to true, but I can't get the tabstop to work. Is there something I'm missing?

    In VC++ 6 there is an option to set up the tab order in the resource editor on the "Layout" menu option. May not be the same in .net.

    FYI, In MSVC++ 6.0, in the resource editor, under the "Layout" menu, the selection is called "Tab Order". Ctrl+D is the shortcut.

    What exactly is going wrong?

    I set the tab order, and still nothing happens. I want it to skip to the next edit box when you hit tab, but it just beeps like an error if you press tab.

    With the group style you have to press the arrow keys to move among the members of the group.

    You only have one group. If you press TAB, it skips to the next group, but there isn't any - so it beeps. Like novacain said, you press arrow keys to move among members in a group, which is probably working correctly. You should have the group style for the start of each new group. So, if they are all individual groups, give all of them the group style.
