To subscribers of the xforms list from Justin Dobbs <jrd@jrd.com> :


I was unable to locate this in the documentation (perhaps I didn't
look hard enough...?). I'd like to use either a callback or
standard do_forms looping to bind the Tab key such that I can
change input box focus in an alternate order.

Reason being, I have an application already written in Xforms
that uses a worksheet, a 2-d grid of input fields. They are
created in order such that the Return key moves down in the sheet,
but I need the Tab key to move over in the sheet to a field which
is not in the creation sequence.

Is there example code that shows how to do this? Did I overlook
a chapter in the documentation? I haven't done straight-Xlib,
so a Forms solution would be best.

Thanks in advance!
