I didn't think this would be a problem, but it appears that others also search for this solution. There is an annoying DING! when hitting the Enter key in a ComboBox in VB.Net so I sought solutions. Here is the solution I am working with. I created a new seperate Class within my Project...
Public Class ClasscboBox Inherits ComboBox Protected Overrides Sub OnKeyPress(ByVal e As KeyPressEventArgs) If e.KeyChar = ControlChars.Cr Then e.Handled = True Else MyBase.OnKeyPress(e) End If End Sub 'OnKeyPress End Class
Looks good, but I am having a problem calling it from the main project. Here is what I have tried using...
Dim objcboBox As New ClasscboBox objcboBox.OnKeyPress(KeyPressEventArgs)
However, it says that KeyPressEventArgs is a Type and cannot be used as an Expression. I tried 'e' but no go. I am a little ahead of my classes (no pun intended) so I am likely missing something about what I am doing wrong.
I have three comboboxes so I though this would best suit my needs in the interests of writting decent code and not populating each call with repeating code.
I'd really appreciate any help on this as I am sure this would be useful to others as well. THANX!
