Protected field and TAB

Is possible to set a field as protected, but in a way, that the TAB key will work for that field (TAB will go to that field) ?

ps: sorry for my english :wink:

Quite simply, no. However, it should be noted that you can move the cursor to a protected field.

What are you trying to do that would require tabbing to a protected field?


I trying to force an user to complete a field only by helproutine, not by standard input.

Have you considered using “REINPUT … USING HELP” ?
In this case the REINPUT statement will startup the “attached” helproutine automatically.


You might try an output only field with a selection box instead of a helproutine.
