The tabIndex property defines the tab order for a form item.

This property can be used to define the order in which the form items are selected as the user "tabs" from field to field when the program is using the formField order option.

It can also be used to define which field must get the focus when a Page is selected.

By default, form items get a tab index according to the order in which they appear on the form.


tabIndex can be set to zero in order to exclude the item from the tabbing list. The item can still get the focus with the mouse.

For additional information, see the TABINDEX attribute topic in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
