STOP EVENT

STOP EVENT

This statement must be used in an event handler. It tells the interpreter that the event that called the event handler must be cancelled.

Only a few native events can be cancelled. This is primarily intended to allow you to supersede default keyboard and mouse behavior with a different behavior of your choice.

Example

' My text box only accepts digits

Public Sub MyTextBox_KeyPress()

  If InStr("0123456789", Key.Text) = 0 Then
    Stop Event
  Endif

End Sub
