Key Board Tab Key in SAP Screen Personas 3.0

Hi Experts,

We are using Screen Personas 3.0

Now on a screen, if we rearrange the fields for example the standard order was

Field1     Field2     Field 3

We changed it

Field1               Field3

Field2  - in second line on the screen.

When we use Tab key in the keyboard - Control is still getting passed from Field 1 to Field 2 to Field 3, where as we would like the control to be passed as per the new Field order while pressing the Tab Key.

Any Idea how to resolve this? Is there any SAP Note that we can apply?


As Steve correctly stated, there is currently no standard functionality that allows changing the tab order in Personas 3.0, however it is planned for SP02.

(As usual, mentioning "planned" doesn't mean a commitment for delivering a feature though.)

I'm copying the solution from an OSS incident here for those who need this feature until it is provided in the standard.

A script can be added to the onLoad event of the screen that changes the tab sequence. This script uses a not officially supported API and therefore, no guarantee can be given about how long it will work. Please see the attached sample script. Just replace the placeholders, e.g. ID_1 with actual control IDs (which can be read using the Script Inspector) and add mapping lines for each modified tab step. Each line defines from which ID (e.g. ID_1) to which ID (e.g. ID_2) the focus needs to move when the tab key is pressed.
