Is there a way to trap the Tab key press to do my own function without having it iterate through each of the text boxes?

If you turn off TabStop for each TextBox and turn on KeyPreview for the Form, then you can use the Form_KeyPress() function to check for the Tab key press.

basically what i have is this to test out the tab. I have 4 text boxes and one label. I select any of the text boxes and press tab, then it executes this code:

Private Sub Form_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
If KeyAscii = 9 Then
i = i + 1
Label1.Caption = Str(i)
End If
End Sub

the label should then have an incrementing number... but i just hear a beep and nothing is changing
