Property Value

The numeric index of the element in the tab order.


TabIndex determines which element in an HTML document will next receive focus when the user presses the TAB key. By default, the only elements included in the tab order are INPUT elements, the SELECT control, and any element whose contentEditable property is set to true. You can include any HTML element in the tab order, such as a DIV, by assigning it an explicit TabIndex.

Valid values for TabIndex range from -32767 to 32767.
