Hello Dave,

If you want to set the webcontrol element's tab index(the sequence they get
focus on web page), the "TabIndex" is the supported means. It is render as
the "tabindex" attribute at client-side html. If you want some certain
control/elements to prevent from being focused (on tab key), you can set
its tabindex to "-1"
