member AcceptsTab : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if users can enter tabs in a multiline text box using the TAB key; false if pressing the TAB key moves the focus. The default is false.

The Multiline property must also be true to get a TAB character in the control.

If the AcceptsTab property is set to true, the user must press CTRL+TAB to move the focus to the next control in the tab order.

The following code example uses TextBox, a derived class, to create a multiline TextBox control with vertical scroll bars. This example also uses the AcceptsTab, AcceptsReturn, and WordWrap properties to make the multiline text box control useful for creating text documents.
