Automatically jumping TabIndex to TabIndex

Hi all, in my PowerApp I have 3 numeric TextInput-fields. Each of them has a different length-limit. Each of the fields has a TabIndex (1,2,3). Is it possible to automatically jump from TextInput to TextInput as soon as you reach the length-limit? Thanks in advance.

I don't believe this is possible.  To advance to the next field the user must press the tab button to advance to the next field.  Here's how you can control which field is next

 

Let's say you have 2 controls: TextInput1 and TextInput2.  Change the OnChange property of TextInput1 to the following.  Now when the user presses tab they will go to TextInput2.

 

SetFocus(TextInput2);
