I have some keyboard-centric users, so I need to employ tab stops.
These tab stops are normally set in a given order on the fields in the form, allowing the user to tab from one to the next in some type of logical order.
The form has been being worked on and revised for a couple weeks now, and fields have been moved all over it.
How do I set the tab stop order for a specific field or group of fields?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is a great question, so I went ahead and wrote a post about it on my blog! Hope the post helps!
Thanks for the quick response. This should help.
I find it interesting that this requires custom js to be added to the form. Tabbing through fields on forms is pretty basic functionality.
I'm guessing this one might make a good request for an enhancement?
No worries! I agree, this would be a great feature request. If you haven't had a chance, go to Customer Feedback for Nintex and post that request. Our Product Team frequents that site constantly to determine the most in-demand features and functionalities.
Also, if the blog post steers you in the right direction, can you please mark that as the answer?
Something that might help is using the Panel form control to group the tabs accordingly. I did a quick test with a form and found it helps with the tabbing structure.
For the test I just tried a simple table structure:
Naturally it wants to Tab from Title to Tab 1, to Tab 3, then Tab 2, and finally Tab 4. To alter it I placed a panel on the left half of the page and moved Tab 1 and Tab 2 into the Panel box (black border for emphasis in editor):
This changed the tab order to move to Tab 2 after Tab 1, then onto Tab 3. It's not exactly tab stops, but it helps with the grouping of like fields.
I'm still extremely new to Nintex (and this is my first post to the community board!), so apologies if this doesn't help with your question.
Thank you, this does help a bit, I was looking for a better way to manage groups of tabs.
Unfortunately, most of my panels are larger and somewhat complex. There are two that will work with this approach.
Thank you for your help with this!
