Hi, I want to set the default active button on a dialoug, but have no idea how to do it. eg: a dialog box with 2 edit controls next to 2 buttons. If you type something into editbox1, then the first button should be 'selected' (ie: black border around it, so when you press enter, it is called) If you type something into editbox2, then the second button should be 'selected' (so when you press enter, the second button is called). Anyone know how to do this, or what google search words I should be using? (tab stop, active window, set focus, dont appear to be doing it...) Thanks!

Great, thanks for that!
Unfortunately the "safe" function he provided doesn't seem to work at all, (it just disables the default button) but the unsafe one that is advised against works fine.. (so far..)
eg:

SendMessage(hWnd, DM_SETDEFID, (WPARAM)IDOK, 0);
