Controlling Tabbing on a Multiple-Page Form

In Chapter 13, “Advanced Form Design,” you learned how to create a multiple-page form as one way to handle displaying more data than will fit on one page of a form on your computer screen. You also learned how to control simple tabbing on the form by setting the form’s Cycle property to Current Page. One disadvantage of this approach is you can no longer use Tab or Shift+Tab to move to other pages or other records. You must use the Page Up and Page Down keys or the record selector buttons to do that. You can set Cycle to All Records to restore this capability, but some strange things happen if you don’t add code to handle page alignment.

To see what happens, open the frmXmplContactsPages form in the LawTrack Contacts sample database (Contacts.mdb) from the Database window. Move to the last record using the record selector buttons, and press Page Down to move to the Home Address field for the last contact. Next press Shift+Tab once (back tab). Your screen should look something like Figure 23-11.
