Default Issues Highlighted Text

I have a form that I'm using for a status window and after the status text is inserting into my text box it gets highlighted and for some odd reason I can't seem to figure out how to not highlight the text. Any suggestions??

What do you mean "highlighted?"

If the text shows up with the focus, it will highlight itself. In order to prevent this in a status window, change the data properties to Enabled = No, Locked = Yes. This will prevent the cursor from acting on the text. If it is a status window, the text shouldn't need to be changed.

Did this help?

The other option that you have is to change the textbox to a label. I am assuming that you only want to display information, and not allow the user to interact with it at all.
