    Default Setting tab order

    Hi All

    I have a transport application, the end user has to fill in number of items, type of Items, weight of items, this is repeated four times for different types of items

    ie 1, plt, 1000kilos, what i would like to do is if the consignment is all one type the tab order take`s it to the cursor in the next item entry field, now if this field is blank, then i would like to place the cursor into a field after the last weight field.

    has anybody got any ideas of how to do this


    Kind regards

    Andy

    You could test the blankness :) of the field in the OnDepart event and then use the 'Activate an Object' action to set focus where ever you like. Actually just setup the Activate an Object action and make it conditional on the contents of the field.

    A complex system that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.
