I am using Excel 2003. I have a spreadsheet full of data
open; I find and select the cell or row containing the
data I need and that cell or row is highlighted. Now I
switch to another application (or workbook) to enter the
data that I highlighted, but the highlighting disappears
when the Excel window lost focus and I can't find my
data. Is there a way to retain the row or cell
highlighting, in an excel spreadsheet, when another
application has the focus?
This is driving me nuts!
This is just a visibility thing, right?

...Undo data entry on lost focus?
My form has a bit of code in it where, OnActivate, it will go to a new record.
This is great for the purpose it was intended, but has the unfortunate side-
effect of pulling a new record whenever someone moves to another open object
(form, table, whatever)- so if a user is having a particularly ADHD-day, or
feels the need to compulsively "check their work," I could end up with
multiple bad records.
In an effort to user-proof this a bit, I inserted a bit of code in the
OnDeactivate event, which goes like this:

When my dialogs first appear, I need to press the mouse button twice - the
first time to make the dialog responsive to the mouse, the second to get a
response. What do I have to do to avoid the first mouse click? It seems
to me the dialog should immediately be responsive to mouse input as soon as
it appears. I've tried SetFocus, and GotoDlgCtl but they do not solve the
problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for your time.
Do it in OnInitDialog and return FALSE if you want focus on a different control the first
control on the dialog.

I need to implement something like a find/replace dialog.
So I select the text in the CEdit and then bring up a dialog to ask
the user what to do with the selection. The problem is that the
selection in the CEdit is only visible when the CEdit has the focus.
Since the dialog steals the focus, the selection is not visible and
the user does not know what (s)he is being asked about.
How can I keep the focus on the CEdit (or keep the selection visible)
while asking the user for input?

I have a SubForm with several textboxes. (txt1, txt2, ...). the Main Form
has buttons cmdNext (DoCmd.GoToRecord , , acNext) and cmdPrev. When I click
Next, say, the next record shows as expected and the subform updates as it
should. But I'd like the cursor to go back to the same textbox it was in on
the previous record. If I'm in txt19 then click cmdNext, I want the cursor
to return to txt19. Is this easy to do?

I want to have as much space for multiple views in MDI application.
The title bar for each child frame (plus the title bar for MainFrame
itself ) take too much space. I removed the title bar for a child
frame by removing WS_CAPTION in window style - however the
children/views do not want to tile in this approach. At least, is
there any way to squeeze the width to absolute minimum, for
both ChildFrame and MainFrame?

I've run into a rather odd problem. I switched to using comctl v6 and my
focus rects for pushbuttons (including checkboxes) no longer draw when the
focus is received by the control. There isn't anything all that unusual
about the code. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 if that is a factor somehow.
The application is just native MFC (no .NET).
Any idea as to why this is happening?

No matter what I cannot seem to get a subform field (or any control on the
parent form for that matter) to take the focus after clicking a cmdbutton (I
am doing this from code ie Me.whatever.setfocus . I am using an onclick
event.) A TAB or mouse click is required to shift the focus on.
The command buttons perform operations on the subform.
No doubt I'm tired and being a little dumb but I have never had an issue
between other controls.
