Tab should move cursor to next editable field


I have a largish table with some input fields. When the user presses tab I would like the cursor to move along editable fields only. Currently when you press tab the cursor moves to the next field regardless if is editable or not.

Any suggestions ?

    Hi Richard,

    I don't think you can implement this functionality in WebDynpro. This is because WD doesn't provide us any method to capture Keyboard events or mouse events, except for the built-in events for 'F4' and 'Enter'. So there is no way, the program can know if a tab is pressed or not. And as far as I know, there is no method to tell which UI element is having the focus now. So your requirement cannot be fulfilled 😔

    Best Regards,
