(ASP.NET) Preventing tab index from going to browser address bar ?

Hello,

I have a web form that tabs properly through the controls on my page. Problem is, after I tab through to the last control, the next thing to receive focus is the address bar in the browser. How can I prevent this from happening.

Thanks,
Mike

I'm afraid you can't do it in a web site application. Event in EE itself, you also can tab until to adress bar (can try it by yourself).
Adress bar also consider one of the TabIndex. Can't prevent it.

Well, I haven't tried this, but let's say you did something like this:

Use the last control's onBlur event.

Find a way to determine whether the onBlur occurred because of a tab keypress.

If so, set focus to the first control in your tab sequence.

That might prevent the user from tabbing to the address bar.

Just a guess.

MichaelVB,
TabIndex for address bar is "0" in Web Site.
If you set Tabindex is "0" for others control inside your web site, but, you still will get back to address bar after you tab from initial tabIndex as you defined in your first control. So, the conclusion is you cant prevent it.
