Is there some convenient way to set controls tab order in Windows form except of setting TabIndex property for every control in form designer?
Unmanaged C++ form designer allows to click every control in desired order, maybe there is something similar in C#?

Hello AlexFM,

How to: Set the Tab Order on Windows Forms  
source: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-US/library/bd16a8cw(VS.80).aspx

1. On the View menu, click Tab Order. This activates the tab-order selection mode on the form. A number (representing the TabIndex property) appears in the upper-left corner of each control.
2. Click the controls sequentially to establish the tab order you want.
3. When you have finished, click Tab Order on the View menu again to leave tab order mode.

hope this helps a bit
