ComboBox & TabIndex

Feb 6, 2008 at 1:38 PM
I have a 3x3 cell HTML table with 2 comboboxes & 7 texboxes on an ASP.Net 2.0 webform as so:

CB TB TB
TB CB TB
TB TB TB

I have the tab order set as so:

1 4 7
2 5 8
3 6 9

When the combobox in the first position gets focus then the tab key is hit, the focus moves over to the second combobox which has a tabindex=5 instead of the textbox with a tabindex=2. Tabbing away from the second combobox bounces around in the IE address bar a couple of times, then continuously tabbing finally makes it back down to the webform then the tab order is completed as follows: 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9.

Did I completely miss something here? Can somebody please help me out? I would like for the tab order to go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,7 8, 9.

Thanks.
