    Default Tab Order Out of Order

    All of a sudden, the tab order on a conditional layer has gone "Out of Order". Even though the tab order goes from the last field on layer 1 to the first field on layer 2, it goes to tab 1 on the form.

    I even used xbasic to activate the object or the first tab on layer 2 but it still goes to tab 1.

    Database compact didn't take care of it.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    kenn

    Hi Kenn,

    I am not sure what you mean by "tab1" on a conditional layer - could you explain a little more ...

    I think I know what you mean. I would suggest that in the OnDepart event of the last field on layer 1, you need to do something like:

    condtest=2
    cond1.refresh()
    field10.activate()

    where field10 is the first field on layer 2

    Hi Gary,

    This is what I have....

    Checkbox28.fill.forecolor ="White"
    condtest=2
    cond1.refresh()
    dad_firstname.activate()

    Forgot to mention, it ONLY happens when I put the form in New Record mode. I can tab from the first object in the first layer to the last object in the last layer with an existing record.

    Thanks,

    kenn

    No, not even in the entire form.

    Thanks,

    Is this code in the OnDepart event of the last field on layer 1?

    Is "dad_firstname" the first field on layer 2?
