Tab order for fields in Configure window

vbimport

#1

Is pretty weird.

Specifically the “DVD To Mobile - Generic” window.

If I start in “File Name” then tab to “Title” I cannot immediately tab to the “Author” field. Since they are part of the same group “File Type: aVI” I would expect to be able to tab between the 3 in succession.

But instead to get to “Author” its 9 tab-presses away from “Title”

Just put your cursor in the box and left click the mouse, no need to tab through every box on the screen.

Of course that’s a solution… or the developers can just set the TabIndex

as it should be, if proper form design is followed.

As long as the developers keep protecting my “Fair Use Rights”, I’ll gladly keep clicking in the boxes.

I look forward to all these helpful replies when I start a new thread discussing how you can’t alt-tab to the application, but sure, I can select it from the task bar.

:rolleyes:

You might need to explain a bit because if you mean toggling between DVDFab and another open program by alt-tab, I do that all the time. Do you mean something else?
