Hi Freaks

A colleague of mine implements a RichEditBox.
Beside a few minor problems he runs into a “big” problem
How to leave the EditBox by TAB-key?

The EditBox grabs the TAB-key and manipulates the RTF-text  by inserting the TAB-char.
Is there any way to prevent this and pass the TAB-Key to UnifAce so it can trigger NEXT-trigger?

If I’m look into documentation, the “NativeKey”-property does not cover this, or?

My solution would be to create a new shortcut in INI-file to fire ^NEXT
If we have to do so, what is the preferable char-combination?
[  ]  CRTL-TAB
[  ]  ALT-TAB
[  ]  ALT-K

Hi Ingo,

my vote is for ALT-TAB, being an “alternative” Tab, to be excluded only if specific tech reasons are killing it.

Under Windows ALT+TAB is already in use:

ALT+TAB: Switch between open programs

Perhaps CTRL+SHIFT+TAB would be possible (even if this demands crossing hands)

On my keybord CTRL+SHIFT+TAB is very simple to type!
They are on top of each other: with a single (left) hand using 3 fingers it’s immediate!

Is rthis shortcut applicable for HTML widget also?

Unfortunately the widget property unifacekeys is not available for the rich edit widget.

Can’t think of a workaround.
