hello everyone!
this is the second time that i am visiting the big moose saloon and i have become a great fan of this place already!
i am facing a problem....actually one of my pages in my app is being rendered by a module (its a simple java class which instantiates the controls like textbox etc. ,at run-time).now when the user hits tab,he moves from one control to another. now lets say i have 6 textboxes and an iframe in my page.....wht i want is hat when the user hits tab, he must keep on moving within the textboxes only,and never should the focus go to the iframe...that is if one has to access the iframe , he or she should have to use the mouse.....i guess it has something to do with the tab-index property....please help me with this problem
Thanks in advance!
