I have a form with several text fields that use the same name in order to autofill, i need to be able to set the tab order to skip fields and go directly into those fields. I have tried using the following code, but it doesn't work I'm assuming because there is more than one field with the same name. Is there a way to do this? this.getField("FieldName").setFocus();

Set fields as read-only to exclude them from the tab order.

Or you can adjust your code like this:

this.getField("FieldName.0").setFocus();

Or:

this.getField("FieldName.1").setFocus();

etc.

Each index number corresponds with one field in the group.
