Ctrl-A

Hi All,

I'm having trouble getting Ctrl-A to work as expected in my app.  I am using using PFC and I've seen on line that it seems to be related, but after playing I still can't seem to get it to work.

The Select All from the RMB menu works but even when I set Ctrl-A as the shortcut key in the m_dw menu it still just make a bong sound when I try ti use it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx,

Shawn

    Hi Shawn;

      Fyi ... If you have any menu item with a CTRL+A short-cut assigned to it, that menu item will steal the keyword message any from your Window and/or controls.

    Just a guess.  HTH

      Hi Shawn;

        In that case, you might want to also look for code attached to the "other" event in your Window or its controls, as well as ...

      Window:

      a) pbm_syscommand

      b) pbm_keyup

      c) pbm_keydown

      etc

      DataWindow:

      a) EditChanged

      b) pbm_dwnkey

      c) pbm_keyup

      d) pbm_keydown

      etc

      Maybe one of those are trapping the CTRL+A.
