TabIndex property

Specifies the position of a single object in the form's tab order.


object.TabIndex [= Integer ]

The TabIndex property syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. A valid object.
Integer Optional. An integer from 0 to one less than the number of controls on the form that have a TabIndex property. Assigning a TabIndex value of less than 0 generates an error. If you assign a TabIndex value greater than the largest index value, the system resets the value to the maximum allowable value.


The index value of the first object in the tab order is zero.
