...Did EAS 3.5 fix the problem where the tab order skips over drop down datawindows in the html datawindow?
I noticed this problem in EAS 3.0 and thought that it would be fixed in EAS
3.5. However, I just installed EAS 3.5 and it still seems to be a problem.
Has anyone else had the same problem?
This is a known issue. According to Sybase it is an issue with IE. I'm not
100% sure there's not something that can be done about that...I'm pushing.
What's interesting is that tabbing in Netscape works fine with dddw fields.

I have a window with a tab control and tab pages are opened dynamically.
Each tabpage has a datawindow control. During runtime, the objects on the
window are included in the tab order but the columns in the datawindow
object on the tab page are not. Does anyone know how to include the fields
in the datawindow control in the tab order so that when the user hits the
tab key, focus does not move to another object on the window and moves to
the next field in the datawindow object?
Seems like a silly question, but did you check the tab order in the
datawindow painter? What about th...datawindow tab order
Not all of my datawindows will not let me use the tab key to go from field to

I have tried the below code, getting error
It's the dot notation. You will need to dw_nes.GetChild("dw_child", ldwc)

You will have to code your own tab logic. I'm not sure what the best
approach would be. Maybe you can use the ItemFocusChanged datawindow
event with the KeyDown function.

I have a nested Datawindow which I need to allow focus to individual lines for
'drill down' purposes. I understand that the default for PB is to make the
object readonly whenever a report object is present. I've seen several postings
where individuals have encountered this challenge in the past. Anyone have a
solution that does not involve getting rid of the nested dw? I'm running PB 5.04
on W2K against SQL Server 6.5.
(Has this been addressed in PB 8? The app is undergoing specific changes now
and will migrated to PB 8 ASAP)
Thanks in advance.

...Tab Order on Web DataWindows
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?

I am trying to use the format tab order to change the tab order in the
My problem is that I have made the tab order changes and saved them. But
when I execute the program and tab thru the fields on the datawindow, the
tab sequence didn't change. (Yep, I went back to make sure I was referencing
the right datawindow. I also checked to make sure the datawindow had saved
the new tab orders.) Is this a bug? Or am I just missing something here?

Difference between Datawindow and datawindowobjects?
- datawindow is a control on a userobject or a window
- datawindowobject (DWObject) is a control within a datawindow, defined in
the dataobject of the datawindow.
You refer to it as <datawindow-instance>.Object.<datawindow object>

DW Control is a "container" that reserves real-estate on the surface of
a visual object.
