Tabbing in ASP.NET form

P: n/a
Tom
A dumb question: Exactly how does tabbing work in an ASP.NET form in the
browser? Does it work the same was as a Windows Forms form does?

I have a rather complicated ASP form (that consists of HTML tables, ASP text
boxes, drop downs, data grids, etc)... and no matter how I set the TAB
indexes, it never seems to work the way I want it to - sometimes tabbing all
over the place!

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any input...

You set the tabindex property which gets rendered as a tabindex attribute of
the html element.

<asp:textbox tabindex=3 ...>
becomes
<input type="Textbox" tabindex=3 ... >

You probably already knew this, but there's nothing else really to know...

you might wanna check out:

also keep in mind that other elements in the browser (like the brower
buttons themeselves) are going to participate in the tabbing experience
which is different that in winforms..
