Add the TabIndex property to all input components
I would like to have the TabIndex property to all input components, like ComboBox, NumericTextBox, all date inputs and pickers and so on.

Hi Dimo,

Thanks for the answer, that explains a lot!

I will keep the toolbar because it is very convenient, but probably have to explain this behavior to users via some sort of help.


Kind regards, Bart

Hi Bart,

This is how the ToolBar keyboard navigation works - only one tool has a focusable tabindex and this tool gains focus when the user reaches the ToolBar via tabbing. At this point, the user navigates inside the component with the arrow keys.

All our components follow this paradigm.

If you don't like this mechanism, then the only option is to abandon the ToolBar and use separate standalone Buttons. There you will be able to control their TabIndex parameters in a granular fashion.

This does not seem to be implemented for the ToolBarButton.

Only the first button has a tabindex=0 assigned to it, all other buttons will have a tabindex=-1, and no way to change it.

In the meantime, you can wrap the components that do not currently have the TabIndex property in a <div> and provide the tabindex html property to that <div> element.
