use tab to enter data in fields with drop-down lists
return key is required to be pressed after an item from drop-down list is selected. Pressing tab in drop-down merely exits the field. I would like tab key to enter the selected item in the drop-down list and then exit the field.
Basically, I would like the tab key to do what the return key does. Is it possible?
(I find it conveinient to use tab key because that is the key used to exit Edit boxes)
Try setting a script trigger to commit the record and move to the next field with the trigger OnObjectkeyStroke. You'll have to try it - I think it will trigger when you tab out as opposed to tab into the field.
