LCD 8.2 Tab Order Problem

Chromio
Level 1
Level 1

It sounds like several people have had issues with the Tab Order feature. I am one of them. I have a multipage, dynamic form. I have given all fields a unique name and ordered all fields in the Hierarchy Tab in the order I'd like them to tab. I have set the Tab Order. My form used to work properly but now, for some unknown reason, it does not.

When I am in the first field of the first page and I hit 'tab' the form tabs to the first field of the second page rather than the next field of the first page. I tried to deleting the first field of the second page but the tab just landed on the field following the deleted one. Any suggestions?

Did you try checking the actual tab order of the fields in the form by going to Window Menu -> Tab Order..

You can set the tab numbering of each field in the form using the Custom setting. You can drag and drop where ever you need (or) enter the tab number you wanted etc.. (You can find them in the splash screen you get when you goto Tab order Palette).

Thanks

I changed the type property in Value tab to Protected for the Lastname and Current Date fields in Master Page.

That helped..

If you do not need a field to be added in the Tab Order, change it to Protected.

You can access the file at below link.
