PDF formfield tab order

How can i change the tab-order in the PDF Form?

  • Hi Olaf,

    The tab order is controlled by the z-order in ReportBuilder. You can adjust the z-order using the "Bring Forward", "Move Backward" functions when right clicking on an object in the designer.

  • Ah, okay.
    Thanks!
  • Hi, Could you say more about changing the tab order? I understand the Bring Forward or Move Backward part. But it's not clear how to determine the relative z-order of fields.

    For example, in a document, tab moves cursor from FieldA to FieldC to FieldB. Which field(s) do I change z-order to tab from FieldA to FieldB to FieldC?

    Thanks,

  • Hi Phil,

    The best place to see the z-order of the components in your report is the Report Tree in the Designer.

    For PDF, the form fields created first (or lower in the z-order) will be tabbed first. For instance, if you would like to tab from FieldA to FieldB to FieldC, you would send FieldC to the back first, then FieldB, and finally FieldA.
