Visual Basic: Windows Controls
Sets or returns a value that determines whether the UpDown control automatically uses a control as its buddy control, based on its tab order.
object.AutoBuddy [= value]
The AutoBuddy property syntax has these parts:
|object||An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.|
|value||A boolean expression that determines the buddy control, as described in Settings.|
The settings for value are:
|True||The UpDown control uses the previous control in the tab order as its buddy control. If no controls with a previous tab index can be used as a buddy control, the UpDown control uses the first available control with a higher tab index as its buddy control.|
|False||(Default) The UpDown control uses the setting in the BuddyControl property as its buddy control.|
Setting the AutoBuddy property to True also sets the BuddyControl property. Setting AutoBuddy to False clears the BuddyControl property.
