Title

Tab Controls in the tab order

Post

I have read this post in filemaker forum: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/c969207803

The answer seems to suggest that the tab controls cannot be tabbed to nor edited in the 'set tab order' dialog, which is what i've found in practice. Yet this page here:

http://www.filemaker.com/help/html/edit_layout.10.30.html

seems to suggest the 'set tab order' command applies to tab controls (plural) and indeed in FileMakerPro11: The Missing Manual (pg 324 "Gem In The Rough" tip at the bottom of the page) it is stated that "...you can put Tab Controls in the tab order too...the space bar switches tabs".

So what's going on here? Can you have all the Tab Controls assigned a tab order or must you script this to happen?

Cheers, Chris
