Dear UI gurus, in particular Peter @Kahrel,

In an UI a TAB order exists - by default the order of creation of controls. I run into some questions here:

  • I do not find a property to explicitly define the tab order. → How to?
  • When amidst an assembly of controls and i want to go to the first one (tab index = 0), it seems that I only have the option to back-TAB as often as nescessary - this requires viual cheks.
  • HOME does not work at all. → Any other ideas?

Thank You for any insight.

You can't change the tab order.

>  i want to go to the first one 

Most controls have the property .active. You can use that as the window's entry point, so to speak.

> HOME does not work at all.

The tab key is the only one available to navigate a window.

(PS: typing @ in front of a name doesn't create a tag: you need to type @ then select a name or moniker from the drop-down.)
