Tab Order Out Of Order

I have a web page with 3 textboxes. I want them to tab from the top one to the middle and then to the bottom one. I have tried acheiving this two ways.

Firstly in the properties pane I set the tab index to 0 for the first, 1 for the second and 2 for the last textbox. When I run the code the focus starts on the first textbox then it jumps to the address box of internet explorer itself and then to the third textbox and finally to second textbox. Not quite what I had in mind.
Secondly I tried putting this code in the Page_Load:

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
TxtName.TabIndex = 0
TxtEmail.TabIndex = 1
txtMessage.TabIndex = 2
Dim strScript As String
strScript = "<script language=javascript> document.all('TxtName').focus() </script>"
RegisterStartupScript("focus", strScript)
End Sub

The results were the same as the first approach. I don't understand why this is happening.
Has anyone got any ideas please?
Thanks, Dave.

Defining the tab order in a form
We've created a custom form using infomaker - and want to specify the order in which a user will click on the columns. (The front end software is tessitura, and the back is sql server 2005). According to the manual - When InfoMaker generates the basic form, it assigns controls (including data columns) to a default tab order, the default sequence in which focus moves from control to control when you press the tab key when running the form. InfoMaker assigns tab values in increments of 1,0 in left-to-right and top-tobottom order. There is more information on pages 552 and 5...

ORDER BY incorrect order
Hi there, We get the wrong result (wrong order) for the following query: select DateRevised, TimeRevised, OrdModalityId from usr.OrdModality where DateRevised = '2004-04-07' and TransportUnitId = 67 order by daterevised asc,timerevised asc; The query uses an index on TransportUnitId, Daterevised, Timerevised We can correct this wrong behaviour either by appending ,* in the select statement OR by using TransportUnitId in the Order By exactly as the index. But why should this be necessary? Thanks, Majodi "Majodi Ploegmakers" <nospam_mploegmakers@...

Tab Order on Web DataWindows
Help.... I set the tab order for a web datawindow in the hopes that it would be applied on the web page and it still just seems to jump randomly from columns on the dw to other objects on the page. I have also set tab indexes on the .Net side as well. Can anybody apply any reason to get everything in sync?

Tab Order not working on migrated forms
We migrated our forms from 5.0 to 7.0. I have a Master/Detail One to Many form with the Tab Order set to Zero on all Master fields and '10' on the detail. Updates allowed on the detail. There is one retrieval argument. When I run the form, the tab order acts like it's set to Zero on everything, not allowing updates. The weird thing is that when you enter a retrieval argument that returns no rows the first time, and then enter a valid retrieval argument on the second try, the tab order then works. Is this a bug in the version, or am I missing something? (If I create...

Tab Order Broken on Complex Forms
I have a form, which has an viewing view (Text boxes etc) and an edit view (TEdits, Combo's) and an edit button which switches between the two, which basically populates controls and sets the edit and view layouts visible. Pretty basic.. But the Tab order seems to kill itself, after trying to follow what happens in the FMX.Types unit, I see that the controls are removed from the TabList, but never added back again once they are visible. Does anyone have any suggestions on a fix for this.... I actually commented out the RemoveFromTabList and this preserved the expected order, but w...

Tab Order in a Form (Detail part)
I have the foll reqt. I need to set the TAB ORDER to ZERO in one of the columns of the detail part of my FORM. But such a feature is not being provided by IM. I tried the alternative of making it 'Display Only' but that led to the column not getting updated at all whereas I am updating that column with the database user id making changes to that record. Making the column INVISIBLE is a solution but not feasible as such since I need to show which record belongs to which user. Any other suggestions would be highly appreciated ..... TIA, Pranav If you don't...

Implementing .Net Form into an web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the sa...

tab order on tab control
In PB 6.5 I have a tab control with three tab pages. On each page I have several objects -- buttons, datawindows and the like. How do I set the 'tab order' for the objects on any one page? When I choose Tab Order from the Design menu, the only object that seems to have a tab order (a number in red displays) is the entire tab control itself, rather than the objects on it. Yet clearly when the app is running you can tab around among the various objects. Thanks. right-click inside the tabpage and select Tab Order HTH, stephen "Rick Charnes" <rick.cha...

TABS, the order you switch between tabs
Name: Johan Hallgren Email: hallgrendotjohanatgmaildotcom Product: Firefox Summary: TABS, the order you switch between tabs Comments: Hi there you wonderful Firefox developers, I have been annoyed for quite a while now over that when you switch between tabs, having at least three tabs open, using the tab/Ctrl combo, and then release the keys, it should remember the last tab used and go to that one when you press tab/Ctrl, and not just go round and around through the open tabs in a circle. Most often you just want to switch between two of the tabs and it is very annoying...
