Tab Order

The .NET Compact Framework supports tabbing between controls with the .NET Compact Framework version 1.0 Service Pack 2 and later.

The .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 supports the TabIndexandTabStop properties but does not support the UpdateZOrdermethod. In version 2.0, you are not required to explicitly set the first control to receive the focus.

If you are creating a custom control, set the Enabledproperty to true if you want it to receive focus.


Pocket PC applications do not display focus rectangles around controls that have the focus.
