Re: Tab key??

If there is one, I can't find it. Based on that my assumption is No.

Re: Tab key??

In filling out forms. No need to touch screen to move cursor to next field.

Well, when ever I fill any forms on the Playbook, I have to touch the screen, then again I have to touch the screen to do just about everything on the Playbook

Re: Tab key??

My playbook will not let me move into the next box on an email form thus I cannot access this Webmail from my playbook. I was hoping to find a way of moving from the search box using TAB.  I tried to add this to native email which will not accept it  : so I can and will get there on my pc, but want to know why I cannot get into the box when on the web. (It is talktalk's Webmail page)

Re: Tab key??

Most people just tap the next box with a finger. Does that not work?

Re: Tab key??

No, however many times I tried to move the cursor into the box, by touch , from its position at the top of the page in a search box it would not move.  However, decided it might be the page at fault and found a way to use a different webpage to get into the web address.  Still cannot work out why I cannot add it to native email but it was once my ISP address,  left now as a free webmail.

Re: Tab key??

There is no tab key. There's not a tab key look-alike or act-alike.

 

You just have to touch the next box. If that doesn't work, for some reason the website you're on is not touch-friendly, I guess.
