Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the user can give the focus to the control using the TAB key; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When the user presses the TAB key, the input focus is set to the next control in the tab order. Controls with the TabStop property value of false are not included in the collection of controls in the tab order. The tab order can be manipulated by setting the control's TabIndex property value.
