Object Type Path to TabStop
.OptionsColumn .TabStop


If the TabStop property is set to false, the column’s cells cannot be focused when navigating through cells via the TAB key. However, these cells can still be focused via the mouse or navigating through cells via the ARROW keys.

To prevent a column’s cells from being focused, use the OptionsColumn.AllowFocus property.

The TabStop property is supported in the GridView, BandedGridView, AdvBandedGridView classes and their descendants. In other Views, this property is not supported.
