Creating a Tab order for the controls

Postby Lokiarmos » Mon Apr 04, 2005 9:39 pm

Ok, i want establish the tabbing order of the objects for the login page and all other other pages as well.

But i found that i can set the tab order but for some reason it won't tab off the two drop down boxes.

i'm releatively new to flash and i researched the topic and people say it should be possible but why doesn't it.

the code (on the controls layer) is use is

_root.tab1.tabindex = 1;
_root.tab2.tabindex = 2;
_root.tab3.tabindex = 3;
_root.tab4.tabenabled = false;


what am i doing wrong... :?

why did macromedia have to make it so hard :lol:

I am confused why you have '_root.tabChildren'. By default it shouldn't need to be changed since by default all layers are used for tabbing. Also, are you setting all the tabindexs? the login state has quite a few more buttons and textbox. :)
