I should have thought that a combination of navindex and setindex would
fulfill Tony's requirements?

Regards to all

  Actually, adjusting tab order by XForms-style declarative computes is a
feature of XFDL-- no scripting required.

  XFDL currently supports an XML model system for hosting XForms instances.
We currently anticipate migration of many more XFDL constructs to XForms
syntax where XForms actually has the equivalent feature.

  However, the point of XForms is to be consumed by another host language
whose additional features can be exploited.  Extension of non-scripted
computes to calculation of UI properties like colors, tab order, and so
forth will continue to be one of the advantages of XFDL as a host language
for XForms (another is, of course, secure digital signatures).

    Adjusting navigation order would almost certainly require script. This
is the case not just for XForms, but also HTML forms, InfoPath, PDF, etc...
basically any forms system I know of. :-)

      hi Alexandre,

      Thanks for the info.  For item (3), in Access or VC++, one can play
around with the tab indexes so that it can tab to those fields when check
box is selected.
      Is there a equivalent in XForms ?  Or can you point me in the right
direction as to how ti can be done.  Thanks.

      Regards,
      Tony
