      Have you tried the FocusGained / FocusLost events? ("Only in the GUI and
      a few console versions.")

      Best regards,
      'Twas the Night before Crisis

      'Twas the night before crisis, and all through the house,
      Not a program was working not even a browse.
      The programmers were wrung out too mindless to care,
      Knowing chances of cutover hadn't a prayer.
      The users were nestled all snug in their beds,
      While visions of inquiries danced in their heads.
      When out in the lobby there arose such a clatter,
      I sprang from my tube to see what was the matter.
      And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
      But a Super Programmer, oblivious to fear.
      More rapid than eagles, his programs they came,
      And he whistled and shouted and called them by name;
      On Update! On Add! On Inquiry! On Delete!
      On Batch Jobs! On Closing! On Functions Complete!
      His eyes were glazed over, his fingers were lean,
      From Weekends and nights in front of a screen.
      A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
      Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread...
