Hi you all,

I have the following problem: when (in VB6) the application runs and the form is docked (in the taskbar), there is a popup of the application whenever there is text written to the textbox on that form. How can I avoid the popup?

Not quite sure what you mean. If I read it right you might try not populating the textbox until the form has focus.

Many thanks for your reaction.
No, the application writes text into the textbox when the application is docked. When I want to write an e-mail for example, the docked application gets the focus when text is written. At that moment the e-mail application does not have the focus anymore and I have to click with the mouse somewhere in my e-mail window before I can continue typing. That is the problem....

might try form2.setfocus . POst the source and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks. I found an unwanted setfocus in the code. Problem solved.

Regards,

Jan
