Hi everyone,

I've created a dialog project to implement a simple calculator. I'm trying to set the focus to be on my dialog so I will be able to use the WM_KEYDOWN to capture keyboard input. I've enabled the ON_WM_SETFOCUS() and ON_WM_KILLFOCUS() options so I will know when my dialog gets the focus, and when then focus is taken away from it.

I've tried setting the focus using SetFocus() in the following way:

BOOL CMyCalculatorDlg::OnInitDialog()



// Set the icon for this dialog. The framework does this automatically

// when the application's main window is not a dialog

SetIcon(m_hIcon, TRUE); // Set big icon

SetIcon(m_hIcon, FALSE); // Set small icon


return FALSE; // return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control


However, when debugging the program I see that the focus is indeed given to the dialog at first ( ON_WM_SETFOCUS() is activated), but then the focus is immediately taken away from it ( ON_WM_KILLFOCUS() is activated ), and because of this the dialog doesn't respond to key pressings.

What am I doing wrong?

BTW: I'm using visual studio 2005 with an MFC project.

Thanks alot!
