Hi Johnf, thanks for your reply.
In my last message I completely messed up the indeces, so please it
ignore it, it will only confuse you here is the correct version.

Well, I have chosen a third way. I manualy created a .cdxml-File
(without the class designer, since my Form is huge and I don't like what
it does to my .cdxml) that looks like this: (I stripped it down to the
essentials for readability)
<dTextBox rowColPos="(1, 1)" DataField="sph_r"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(1, 2)" DataField="sph_l"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(2, 1)" DataField="cyl_r"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(2, 2)" DataField="cyl_l"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(3, 1)" DataField="ach_r"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(3, 2)" DataField="ach_l"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(4, 1)" DataField="add_r"></dTextBox>
<dTextBox rowColPos="(4, 2)" DataField="add_l"></dTextBox>
This results in the TabOrder sph_r,sph_l,cyl_r,cyl_l,...
But I want sph_r,cyl_r,ach_r,...,sph_l,cyl_l,...

That I have found, but it is no use to me in my situation, since I want
TabStop but just a different order.
