unwanted tab/field behavior with drop down calendar and drop down list

Post

i have a date field that is formatted with a drop down calendar.  after selecting a date form the calendar, filemaker automatically jumps to the next field in the tab order (which has a drop down list) and selects it or makes it active and displays the drop down list options.  however, if i change this second field to a popup menu, filemaker does not jump to this field whenever a date is entered in the first field.  it is also the case that if instead of selecting a date from the calendar i simply type in a date, filemaker does not jump to the next field regardless of whether it is a popup menu or a drop down list.

 

anyway, does nayone know how to prevent this behavior from happening so that i can select a date from the calendar without it jumping to the next field and displaying the drop down list?
