TabIndex Property

Hi all, so I was playing around with TabIndex property and it did not work the way I thought it was if someone could clarify the details. I had 3 TextInput controls, the first control has a TabIndex of 0, second control TabIndex of 2 and third control TabIndex of 1. When I'm on the second control and click tab it goes to the first control, but when I'm in the third control and click tab it does nothing. Thanks in advance

I think 0 is not reletaive to the process.  I think you need to number them all 1,2,3

 

This is in the help docs to text input

 

Customizes the tab order of controls at runtime when set to a non-zero value.

 

So must be a non zero value

I did some further testing, the help is a bit confusing to the test results. (Sorry can't find how to attach screenshot..)but I now have 7 fields, first with tab index 4, 2nd tabindex 3, 3rd tabindex 3, 4 tabindex 2, 5 tabindex 2, 6 tabindex 3 or 4 for testing.

 

The first field if I tab it will go to the 6th field if the tabindex is 4, 2nd field will go to the 3rd field (tabindex 2 goes to tabindex 2), but for some reason if I choose a field with tabindex of 2 and change my 6th field tabindex to 3, it goes to the 2nd field still which has a tabindex of 3. It is ignoring the last field.

 

Sorry if this is confusing but I can't attach a file to show what I mean.
