Click event
« on: February 03, 2021, 05:56:15 AM »
How can a click event be generated by pressing a key?

I am doing my first form and I am lost
I have a form in which there are buttons with numbers (like a numeric keyboard). With the mouse and the click event I do what I need, but I also want to do it with the numeric keyboard, and it has occurred to me, in order not to duplicate code, that with the KeyPress event of the key 1 (for example) make a click of the button that draws a 1. Thus, the same thing that is done when clicking with the mouse on that button would be executed.

And another thing. Where can I find the list of commands and the syntax of all of them? I can't find it on the Wiki.

Hi, Juan.

To generate a click programmatically, you can call the __UI_Click SUB directly, passing the name of the control you wanna "click". For example:

Code: QB64: [Select]
  1. __UI_Click Button1

InForm's wiki is in need of an update indeed. In the meantime, feel free to ask here and I'll keep on providing assistance as you need it.
