Visual Basic Reference
Returns or sets a value indicating whether a user can use the TAB key to give the focus to an object.
object.TabStop [= boolean]
The TabStop property syntax has these parts:
|Object||An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.|
|Boolean||A Boolean expression specifying whether the object is a tab stop, as described in Settings.|
The settings for boolean are:
|True||(Default) Designates the object as a tab stop.|
|False||Bypasses the object when the user is tabbing, although the object still holds its place in the actual tab order, as determined by the TabIndex property.|
This property enables you to add or remove a control from the tab order on a form. For example, if you're using a PictureBox control to draw a graphic, set its TabStop property to False, so the user can't tab to the PictureBox.
