Tab order not matching up on Web version

Hi all,

I work for a human factors/usability engineering firm that recruits people to test how useable technology products are. We use Filemaker Pro to keep track of our participants. Right now all of our associates use the web interface to record new information and update records.

The problem is: We've set the tab order and it works fine when you are using the file through Filemaker but when it is being viewed through the browser the tab order is following some obscure logic of its own. We are frequently trying to make corrections when we have someone on the phone so we don't have to do it twice and it really slows us down not to have the tab key working.

Thanks for any information you can give me!

The syntax is

< input type="text" name="textfieldName" tabindex="1" size="24">

< p>< input type="text" name="textfieldName" tabindex="2" size="24">

< p>< input type="text" name="textfieldName" tabindex="3" size="24">

The TABINDEX is not working in NN4 (what is actually working in NN4?).

Just discharge the space after <

I experience the same problem with my database using WC. I don't see an answser in Anatoli's reply unless one were building custom pages to the WC. Does anyone have an answer for this or is it just one of FMP5s/WC shortcomings?

That is for custom web publishing.

In Instant Publishing I guess the Tabs are in sequence as they where created (not arranged) in FM layout. Try to create new layout.

Sooner or later you will crash with something else in IP. Try to learn Custom WP.
