TAB jumps some text boxes
« on: September 26, 2021, 12:59:46 AM »

Dear Forum users,

This appears simple but I cannot figure out.

I have a dialog form of several text boxes and pressing the TAB key jumps from one text box to another but all of a sudden, it skips three text boxes and jumps to the fourth one.

What property controls this?

I thought it may be "Is TabStop" but its description talks about focus control and not whther each one is honred by TAB in order.

Can you please help?

Best Regards
Rakesh Rao

IsTabStop must be true, and the tab order is defined by the order of the controls on the form (which you can control by moving them around in the Z order tab).

Hi Owen,

IstabStop is true for all the text boxes.

What/where is "Z order tab"? I cannot seem to find that.

It is identified in the documentation as "Tab Order Pane".
