Property Value

Type Default Description


true if the user can focus the editor using the TAB key; otherwise, false.


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

If the TabStop property is set to false, the editor can still be focused using the mouse.
