TabStop Property Example

The following example uses the TabStop property to control whether a user can press TAB to move the focus to a particular control. The user presses TAB to move the focus among the controls on the form, and then clicks the ToggleButton to change TabStop for CommandButton1. When TabStop is False, CommandButton1 will not receive the focus by using TAB.

To use this example, copy this sample code to the Declarations portion of a form. Make sure that the form contains:

  • A CommandButton named CommandButton1.

  • A ToggleButton named ToggleButton1.

  • One or two other controls, such as an OptionButton or ListBox.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() 
 MsgBox "Clicked CommandButton1." 
End Sub 

Private Sub ToggleButton1_Click() 
 If ToggleButton1 = True Then 
 CommandButton1.TabStop = True 
 ToggleButton1.Caption = "TabStop On" 
 CommandButton1.TabStop = False 
 ToggleButton1.Caption = "TabStop Off" 
 End If 
End Sub 

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() 
 CommandButton1.Caption = "Show Message" 

 ToggleButton1.Caption = "TabStop On" 
 ToggleButton1.Value = True 
 ToggleButton1.Width = 90 
End Sub
