I asked this question before, and received several responses telling me it's a bad idea... However, nobody actually answered my question.

In my application, it makes sense to autoreturn after three characters, or four characters...

Here's the sequence of events:

1) Customer calls our store and wants to schedule a free fence estimate.
2) Employee opens my software and opens the "Customer" view.
3) Employee asks for customer's telephone number.
3a) Employee enters area code in the "area code" form -- and must hit the "TAB" key to move to the next form...
3b) Employee enters prefix in the "prefix" form -- and must hit the "TAB" key to move to the next form...
3c) Employee enters suffix in the "suffix" form -- and must hit the "TAB" key to move to the next form... At this point, the software executes an autofind with the following code in the Data Dictionary:

Code:
        Set Field_Option Field Customer.Suffix       DD_AutoFind to True


Everything works exactly as it should, but I would very much prefer NOT to force the employee to hit the TAB key three times...

Ideally, the "area code" form would autoreturn after three (3) characters.

Ideally, the "prefix" form would autoreturn after three (3) characters.

Ideally, the "suffix" form would autoreturn after four (4) characters.

Can you guys please help me make my employee's life easier by adding an autoreturn to these forms?

thank you!
