Chapter 39. Creating Web Forms in GoLive > Facilitating Form Navigation

Facilitating Form Navigation

To make your forms easier to navigate, you can assign a particular tabbing order and even assign keyboard shortcuts. These features enable users to select individual form elements by pressing Tab or a specific key combination. Not all browsers support form navigation control keys, but for those that do, it can be quite a time saver for your form users.

Tabbing Chains

You can define a tabbing chain for any set of form elements on the same page, as shown in Figure 39.22. The tabbing chain simply indicates in what order the form elements are selected when users press the Tab key repeatedly. Labels, text fields, password fields, text areas, submit buttons, reset buttons, check boxes, radio buttons, pop-up menus, and list boxes all support tab indexing.
