Entry field finish reason

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is there a way to capture the actual finish reason when leaving an entry field?

I mean, besides of getting EVENT-TYPE = MSG-FINISH-ENTRY (16393), I would like to know which was the key used to leave the entry field (e.g. TAB, Shift+TAB, ENTER, mouse action...). 

Thanks.

For the keys, you can use the keystroke configuration variable, such as "keystroke" to "exception=69 kB" (this would be for shift tab), and have exception values for all of the keys you want to trap. This wouldn't help with a mouse action.
