Re Arrange TabIndex from Left to Right in CRM forms

Generally, by default CRM provides tab order from top to bottom. But sometimes depending on the requirement or for professional look and feel we come across Left to Right order in CRM forms.

To change the default tab order use the following lines of code

function tabOrderLefttoRight() {

for (var i = 0; i < Xrm.Page.ui.controls.getLength() ; i++) {

var element = Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(i);

if (element.tabIndex && element.tabIndex != “0”) {

if (element.className == ‘ms-crm-Hidden-NoBehavior’)

continue;

if (element.tagName == ‘A’) {

if (element.className != ‘ms-crm-InlineTabHeaderText’)

continue;

}

element.tabIndex = 1000 + (i * 10);

}

}

}

The above code runs well on IE 11 and for Chrome for CRM 2013 environment. For 2011 we need to get the length of the controls used in the form using crmForm. As it unsupported customization going forward we use Xrm attributes. Calll the above function on load of a form. So, we are now set right to left to right tab order. I hope this will help you. Happy CRMing. Thank you.:)
