Navigating Pop-Up menus

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if there is another post referencing this. I tried searching for it but didn't find anything.

I have a form that contains a few pop-up menus. Ideally the user tabs into the field, in this case a "state" field presses 'i' and "ID" is populated. If the user presses 'i' again the field value would change to "IL" for Illinois.

A drop down menu sort of does this but from a user experience, they are really cluegy. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

I found this post but it is 5 years old. Is this still the case or could I use a script trigger to open if the field is tabbed to?

"Pop-up menus, however, cannot be tabbed to on the Macintosh platform, and therefore, menu choices can only be made by using the mouse. On the windows platform, you can tab to a pop-up menu field and you may make menu selections using the arrow keys or the mouse."
