Upon clicking of Tab, focus goes to address bar...

Hi Experts,

I am trying to control the tab key to go to the next textbox...    

However as I focus on my first textbox during OnLoad and then press Tab key, instead of going to my 2nd textbox, it goes to the address bar...

May I ask how to solve this...?   A sample code would be best...


Thanks in advance experts...!   =)

Hi aris_datuin,

Have this:

<input type="text" tabindex="2"> for your second text box, although it should work without that...  

Regards,

Also, I have another dillemma on how to control th F3 key so that it can call a javascript fuction anytime...   Right now, I have onKeyPressed on my first textbox...   But if the focus is on another object, it is not working unless I also put onKeyPressed on all of my objects...   However, if none of my objects is in focus, how will I control the F3 key...?

Thanks in advance again...!   =)

Do something like this:

document.onkeyup=handleFT;

function handleFT(e) {
   var key=(window.event)?window.event.keyCode:e.which;
   if (key==114) {//If F3
      //Do this
   }
}
