Validating & Control Focus

Hi, I have implemented a form using a TabControl with 5 TabPages. On one page, I have a number of controls, i.e., ComboBoxes, RadioButtons, NumericUpDowns, etc. I want to validate the data entered by the user into these controls and at the same time allow the user to cancel the form if he wishes. To implement this, I copied some sample code: private void tabControl1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { tabControl1.TabPages[tabControl1.SelectedIndex].Focus(); tabControl1.TabPages[tabControl1.SelectedIndex].CausesValidation = true; } private void tpSchedule_Validating(object sender, CancelEventArgs e) { bool bValid = true; if ((string)cboSchedule.SelectedItem == "Weekly") { if (cboRunOnDOW.SelectedItem.ToString() == "") bValid = false; } } My problem is that the TabPage always has the focus and won''t allow the Cancel button push to be handled. If I remove the first line of the SelectedIndexChanged() event handler, the Cancel button push is handled, but then the validation stuff is never invoked. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks, Royce

Did you try setting CausesValidation to false on the Cancel button? It should then prevent validation of the controls. -Praveen Syncfusion
