    Tab stops for edit controls

    I was wondering how to make the tab stops like when you hit tab, the focus changes to the next control. I create the controls using the CreateWindow method and when I add the WS_TABSTOP style, nothing happens when I hit tab. Is there any way to do this? Thanks in advanced for any help!!!

    I was wondering if there was any way for the program to recieve the user hitting the tab key, get the current focused control, and focus on the next control (which in my case: if the id of the current focused control is 0, the next control that I want to have focused would be 1 and so on).

    EDIT:

    That worked. Thanks.
