tabIndex Help Please???

P: n/a
Dear friends,

I am using tabIndex and it works with my IE 5.5, IE6.0, and the NN6
browsers.

However, it does not work for NN4. After reading online & seeing in my
JavScript Bible that it is NOT COMPATIBLE for NN4,,

I am wondering if there is anyone out there with any ideas ,,as to how I may
get the same tabbing sequence within NN4 without the use of tabIndex??

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks in advance,

Brad

Have you tried changing the order in which the form elements appear in the
HTML file?

You can't apply a tabindex to an entire form -- that isn't valid HTML.
The tabindex attribute is only supported by these elements: A, AREA, BUTTON,
INPUT, OBJECT, SELECT, and TEXTAREA.

If that still doesn't work, then my original suggestion was to arrange the
form elements in your HTML file in order of their tabbing index.

For example...

<table>
<tr>
<td><input (*Item 1*)><br><input (*Item 2*)></td>
<td><input (*Item 3*)><br><input (*Item 4*)></td>
</tr>
</table>

gives you a top-bottom left-right tabbing order, and

<table>
<tr>
<td><input (*Item 1*)></td><td><input (*Item 2*)></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><input (*Item 3*)></td><td><input (*Item 4*)></td>
</tr>
</table>

gives you a left-right top-bottom tabbing order.

But since you posted your HTML snippet I really have no idea what you're
trying to achieve here.

I hope this helps anyway

Phil
