According to MSDN, the tab order is the order in which a user moves focus from one control to another by pressing the TAB key. Each form has its own tab order. By default, the tab order is the same as the order in which you created the controls. Tab-order numbering begins with zero
. When a certain container control is focused (e.g. RadPanel
), pressing the Tab key will navigate to the next control within this parent container and then it will jump to the rest containers on the same level.
If you need to monitor which control is focused when the Tab key is pressed I would suggest you to override the ProcessCmdKey
method of the form and if Keys.Tab is handled, you can set the ActiveControl
to the desired control.
