Setting Button Tab Order

The tab order determines when a button receives focus as you press the Tab key in a SWF or PDF document. When a button receives focus, you can press Enter (Win) or Return (Mac) to execute the button. You can also use the On Focus event to trigger an action when a button gets the focus. In the Tab Order dialog box, you can change the tab order for optimal use. The tab order includes buttons on hidden layers, but not buttons on master pages.
