On Captivate screens you can jump to textfields, buttons and rollovers with the tab key. In Captivate, you cannot set the order. Captivate usually follows the normal reading sequence, but I’ve also seen situations where Captivate follows a very different order.
With my TabOrder widget the ordering is now completely in your hands. Just put the Item Names in the desired order in the widget.
|Attention: With the latest updates of Captivate 6 (6.0.1) there is a problem with this widget. On entering a slide with several Text Entry Boxes Captivate overrules the setFocus. So the TEB that is selected first isn’t always the same as specified in the widget. The taborder itself works fine.|
Hide yellow highlight
Captivate shows a yellow highlight on buttons and rollover areas that have the focus. The widget has a checkbox that hides the highlight.
In the demo version in each text box and button will appear a label with tab number. Use the demo version to see if you can use the widget. The version without the labels cost € 10.
