Disabling VB.Net controls
My eight millionth post so for (writing my first vb.net application!)...

I am disabling some edit controls until the user actually explicitly chooses to edit a particular record. I've set the enabled property of the relevant text boxes to false, however this makes values somewhat difficult to read. I can trap the enter event for the text boxes, however I'm not sure how to cancel the attempt to edit. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks v much to all those who are providing me with such a lot of help!

This isn't quite the answer you are looking for but...

Instead of disabling an entry box, could you just use a label for the value and a textbox for entry? Show the label in "view" mode and the textbox in "edit" mode.

Work smarter, not harder.

It's ok - I discovered a old thread (http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_...isable,control) that discusses exactly this issue. Thanks again for your help!
