Removing a component from the tab order

In some cases you might want to prevent users from being able to tab to a component on a form. For example, there's usually no need for users to access a Panel component, because they can't modify it. You might want, in such a case, to remove the component from the tab order altogether. When the user presses the Tab key in the running application, the focus will skip over this component and go to the next one in the tab order. This is true even if the component has a valid TabOrder value.

â–  To remove a component from the tab order,

1 Select the component in the form.

2 Use the Object Inspector to set the value of the TabStop property to False. Note Removing a component from the tab order doesn't disable the component.
