    Default How to change tabIndex in a freeform formview layout?

    Below a picture of a formview.


    The four highlighted fields are edited in a groupeditor. The others in different kind of editors.
    I navigate through the fields of the formview with the formViewNavigate() function.
    But want to tab through the group editor fields all at once, without being interrupted by other fields

    I tried to add an alternative (preferred) tabIndex in the definition of the layout (see below). With no success.
    How can one change the default tab order in a formview?

    <span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="1">{Relaties_bedrijfs_naam}</span>
    <span style="float:right;text-align:right;padding-right:10px;" tabIndex="2">{Relaties_telefoon}</span><br/>
    <span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="6">{Relaties_straat_postbus}</span>&nbsp;<span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="7">{Relaties_huis_postbus_num}</span>
    <span style="float:right;text-align:right;padding-right:10px;" tabIndex="3">{Relaties_mobiel}</span><br/>
    <span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="8">{Relaties_postkode}</span>&nbsp;<span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="9">{Relaties_woonplaats}</span>
    <span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="10">{Land_Kod_kode}</span>
    <span style="float:right;text-align:right;padding-right:10px;" tabIndex="4">{Medewerk_kode}</span><br/>
    <span style="float:right;text-align:right;padding-right:10px;" tabIndex="5"">{Relaties_mail}</span><br/>
    <span style="text-align:left;" tabIndex="11">{Relaties_opmerkingen}</span>
    Thanks in advance

    Copy your UX and replace your List Source with some static data. Remove whatever else is extraneous to the question... and post the UX. I'm assuming the <span> stuff you've posted is just part of the layout... you've not posted all of it. I doubt a tabIndex will get you what you want... rather a better layout may be the answer. But trying to guess how you've built your UX and FormView in order to test a solution is way too much work. Post a sample which illustrates your question.
