Syntax

[PowerBuilder]

[Web ActiveX]

Argument

Description

dwcontrol

A reference to a DataWindow control or
child DataWindow in which you want to define the tab order.

column

The column to which you are assigning
a tab value. Column can be a column number
or a column name. The column number is the number of the column
as it is listed in the Column Specification view of the DataWindow
painter—not necessarily the number of the column in the
Design view.

tabnumber

The tab sequence number (0 – 9999) you
want to assign to the DataWindow column. 0 removes the column from
the tab order, which makes it read-only.

Return Values

Returns the previous tab value of the column if it succeeds
and –1 if an error occurs. If any argument’s value
is null, in PowerBuilder and JavaScript the method returns null.

Usage

You can change a column in a DataWindow object to read-only
by changing the tab sequence number of the column to 0.

Examples

This statement changes column 4 of dw_Employee
to read-only:

These statements change column 4 of dw_employee
to read-only and later restore the column to its original tab value
with read/write status:
