Tab Index control in a gallery

Hello community,

I need your help please.

I've built an App has a Gallery control, I would like to use the Keyboard Tab option to move across the columns as my app has a Scrolling effect like Excel.

I have seen previous posts about this but nothing around a fix and was wondering if anyone had managed to resolve any of the issues,

I want to be able to Tab across left to right, and I have set my TabIndex Property to 1, 2, 3, etc, I have also tried using Column name.TabIndex +1 but that did not work either.

Any Suggestions on how to get this working would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance

The Tab Index property should never be changed.  It is warned against in the docs.  And it is recommended to utilize a container control for your controls to contain the tab logic you want.


I hope this is helpful for you.

@RandyHayes ,
Thank you for the information,

Do you have any examples for the container control where the Keyboard Tab would work?


Thank you in advance
