Hi,

 

 

I know 3 methods to show a form in vb.net :

 

Dim Uf As New Form1
Uf.ShowDialog()

            Pros : Tab key works

            Cons : no access to SolidWorks

 

Dim Uf As New Form1
Uf.Show()

            Pros : Full access to SolidWorks

            Cons : Tab key do not works

 

Dim Uf As New Form1
Application.Run(Uf)

as said here : 2019 SOLIDWORKS API Help - Keystrokes and Accelerator Keys in ActiveX Modeless Dialogs and Property Manager Pages 

 

            Pros : Tab key works

            Cons : limited access to SolidWorks, cannot rebuild, edit a sketch ect...

 

 

So there is my question : Can we show a form and still have full access to SolidWorks with the tab key enabled in the form ? 

 

Thx
