Tab order issue with Multiple Custom Controls

I am having trouble with controling tab order when using multiple custom controls. Specifically I have a form that has 3 custom controls (that I wrote) and a series of buttons. One of the custom controls has in it anouther custom control. All the custom controls have items managed by using panels. Here is a rough example of what I am talking about. Control 1: Has a drop down, a data grid and a buttons. I have the tab order set (0)Drop Down, (1)Data Grid, (2)Button. Control 2: Has a check box, a drop down, two text box, a “Control 1”, and set of radio buttons on a panel. I have the tab order set to (0)check box,(1)drop down, (2) Radio buttons, (3) text box #1, (4)”Control 1”, (5) textbox #2. Control 3: Has a data grid only. I have the tab order set to (0) Data grid. Control 4: Has a check box, a drop down (#1),a set of radio buttons on a panel, a drop down (#2), and a text box. I have the tab order set to (0)Check box, (1)Drop Down #1, (2)Radio Buttons, (3)Drop Down #2, (4)text Box Form: Has Control 2, Control 3, Control 4, and 4 buttons. I have tab order set to (0)Conrtol 2,(1)Control 3, (2)Control 4, then the buttons in order (3 – 7). When the application runs, I start in Control 2 tab index 0. I can tab through item 1 and 2, but I loose the focus indicator when I try to tab to go to item 3. If I start on control 4 the tab from index 0 takes me to the buttons of the form. I am using Syncfusion 3.0.1.0 Thanks Ben Waters Scottsdale City Court

Hi Ben, make sure all your controls have TabStop = true set. If that is not the problem do you have a sample project that demonstrates the issue? Thanks, Stefan >I am having trouble with controling tab order when using multiple custom controls. Specifically I have a form that has 3 custom controls (that I wrote) and a series of buttons.
