Thank you for the post.
Please review page 41 on "Tab order" from the FileMaker 13 WebDirect Guide:
• The tab order might vary from the tab order in FileMaker Pro. Different browsers might support the tab order in a different manner.
• The tab order in a web browser includes edit boxes, drop-down lists, pop-up menus, drop-down calendars, and portals."
Thanks for your response. I did notice that in the WebDirect Guide. I should also explain that this only happens when adding a new record within a portal. After a record is created or outside of a portal, tabbing appears to work fine. Also, focus is lost on the first tab within a portal and tabbing a second time will bring focus back, but the cursor has moved down two fields in the tab order. Each browser seems to have a different behavior....with Chrome being one of the better browsers. Other browsers caused the tab to move down a record instead of across to the next field. Absent the tab working, one of my users had to click twice within the next field to gain focus.
Do the tab order settings you can select via Set Tab Order have any effect on this at all? Could it be possible to remove all tab orders?
I'm guessing no, but no tab order at all might be preferable to unpredictable tab orders.
Good question. I did verify that the tab order was correct and that there were no buttons setup with tabs stops or between fields. As this is a purchase order system with the portal containing the line items, tabs will be quite important for this application.
Yes, but is there any relationship at all between that specified tab order and what you see? Does changing that order have any effect at all?
Because I had to revert back to FileMaker Server 12, I don't have a quick way to test this out. I'm hoping that someone else who uses portals within WebDirect could help to verify this issue. Perhaps it's a problem with my Windows 2008 Server or Windows servers in general. Thanks again for your help.
