Alt Selection using mouse

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

I'm trying to prevent my software from changing focus to the menu bar upon release of the Alt key after a block selection using the SyntaxEditor. The demo SDI editor seems to not have this problem... Anyone have any ideas?

Hi Michael,

What sort of menu control are you using here?  Is it a third-party one?  Perhaps you could track SyntaxEditor's KeyUp event and if the mouse's left button is down while Alt is being released, set e.Handled = true?  Perhaps that would help prevent the menu control from getting it.
