Tab does not trigger text box leave event RRS feed

  • Question

  • My software is developed in visual basic 2003. It has been running without any problem since 2008. since last week, some  users complained that when pressing the tab key from a text box on a windows form, the text box leave event is not triggered. They are running the software on windows 7 with dot net framework 1.1 SP1. nothing has been changed in the software.

    Any suggestion is most welcome

  • Hi PMenage,

    Have you tried to run it in compatibility mode?

    If system restore is available, we could recover the machine to a previous point.

    Considering this software is developed by yourself and the environment is a little old, we may need to re-develop the software. For a developing issue, it is recommended to ask for help from our MSDN forum.
