    PS: The link to the code tags is on the lower-left-hand corner of each 'posting' page, the "VbCode is ON" link. Using IE you just Right-click, copy shortcut.
    Another nice one...since I KNEW it existed, but lost the link. ANNNND no clue where to find it.

    I took your clue for "VbCode Is On" (odd choice of words cause I would think VB as in "Visual Basic" and not "links are on" (or maybe they mean the same??? who knows???)

    Anyways finding the link and a copy paste in mozilla
    VbCode is on
    and
    http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pbforums/misc.php?do=bbcode"]VbCode is on
    work in Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6 as well

    Thanks for pointing out the code tags. I didn't have a clue.
    I'll spend some time experimenting to find the problem.

    It should not make a difference. The user expects to 'click' a button EITHER by using the mouse or by pressing <spacebar> when the button has the keyboard focus... which is why WM_COMMAND/BN_CLICKED is generated in either case.

    What you might try is:
    Code:
    Control [B]Redraw[/B] hdlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX1 
    ...
    Control [B]Redraw[/B] hdlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX7 
    ...
    Control [B]Redraw[/B] hdlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX9
    After each Set Text. Worst can happen is it doesn't work.

    For sure you need to use the code tags ==>

    Agreed, and thank you for posting that link (I have long since lost my link and can not remember all the commands that I do not use often.

    You should never have to actually click or even send a fake click to get your controls to look the way they should.
    Actually one would if you want your callback to show the current state (depending on a control, setting a combobox index, will not send the click to update other controls.
    But then again, when matching display to current content (especially if accessed from outside the dialog/form/window) then its time to build a function that any can call and show the proper display

    Besides, what if your user uses the KEYBOARD instead of the mouse to navigate?
    case in point for above...display to match value, but not knowing if a "Click" was a click of the keyboard??? or the mouse????

    Time for that function I should have made to be called from both

    (When will I learn to take my own advice as well as I can give it???? (only Mr. Owl Knows) )

    Thanks Michael-
    COMBOBOX SELECT hDlg, %IDC_combobox1, 1
    COMBOBOX UNSELECT hDlg, %IDC_combobox1 ' If I don't do this, it doesn't get updated.

    ShowDIALOG20 %HWND_DESKTOP 'This dialog does a payment for this record

    UpDateFile ' copies the data array to the data file


    COMBOBOX SELECT hDlg, %IDC_combobox1, gCurrentEntry ' selects this record

    UdtToDialog (hDlg, gCurrentEntry) 'should, but doesn't set new text

    SUB UdtToDialog(BYVAL hDlg AS DWORD, Index AS LONG)

    LOCAL Temp AS clFileType132
    LOCAL SaveState AS LONG
    LOCAL y AS LONG

    IF Index > UBOUND(gClArray(1)) OR Index < LBOUND(gClArray(1)) THEN
    RESET Temp
    ELSE
    Temp = gClArray(Index)
    END IF

    ' When we change the edit control data, we generate EN_UPDATE messages...
    ' Due to the design of our GUI interface, we would end up with the ADD and UPDATE
    ' buttons becoming enabled just because we loaded a new UDT record into the dialog.
    ' To overcome this, we set the "modified" flag to %TRUE, so the main callback
    ' function ingores the "update" notication messages.

    SaveState = gIsRecModified
    gIsRecModified = %TRUE



    'Client Page
    CONTROL SET TEXT hDlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX1 , RTRIM$(Temp.Clnumber)

    CONTROL SET TEXT hDlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX7 , RTRIM$(Temp.Business)
    CONTROL SET TEXT hDlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX9 , RTRIM$(Temp.ClType)
    CONTROL SET TEXT hDlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX10 , RTRIM$(Temp.First1)

    CONTROL SET TEXT hDlg, %IDC_TEXTBOX17 , RTRIM$(Temp.zip1)
    ''''''more
    end sub

    I think because I've got tabs in this something else is causing this. The udtToDialog appears to work in de-bug. I can create something similar in the little sample tab program and it works ok. I started with that because of the tabbing problem.
    If I click the combobox everything works OK. I would like not to have to do that.
    That's why I asked if there is a command to substitute for that mouse click.
    Hope this makes sense.

    want to update textboxes after using a dialog to make changes to the data in the boxes.
    I would like to do this without mouse or keyboard. Is there any way to have the program emulate a click on the combobox? I am unselecting the combobox, doing the change dialog, and then selecting the combobox. Updating the text boxes doesn't work.

    I don't get the "click on the combobox" stuff, but SetDlgItemText() or SetWindowText() (SDK) or CONTROL SET TEXT (DDT) will update the text of either a label or edit ("textbox") control. If it "doesn't work" then you are doing something wrong but no one here can divine what that might be without seeing some code.

    If you want to change the currently selected item in a combobox control, you can use the CB_SETCURSEL message (SDK) or the COMBOBOX SELECT statement ( DDT).

    combobox execution

    I'm using Win 9.0 with XP SP2. I am a "nubi" who manages painfully to get programs working over too long a time. Now I'm stuck with this: I want to update textboxes after using a dialog to make changes to the data in the boxes.

    The programs too large to post. Your pros say ask even if it's stupid, so I'm asking.
