Hi All, i have a jsp page that contains about 20 drop-down boxes in one row and 20 text boxes in another row. For example 5 drop downs are visible to the user without the horizontal scroll. to view the remaining drop-downs the user has to horizontally scroll the page. now if my focus is on the first drop down box and i hit the "TAB" button, then the focus moves horizontally to the next drop-down. once all the drop downs are focused upon in such manner , the focus shifts to the text boxes in the next row. since only 5 drop downs are visible at a time, if my foc   More>>

Hi All,



i have a jsp page that contains about 20 drop-down boxes in
one row and 20 text boxes in another row.




For example 5 drop downs are visible to the user without
the horizontal scroll. to view the remaining drop-downs
the user has to horizontally scroll the page.






now if my focus is on the first drop down box and i hit the
"TAB" button, then the focus moves horizontally

to the next drop-down. once all the drop downs are focused
upon in such manner , the focus shifts to the text
boxes in the next row.



since only 5 drop downs are visible at a time,

if my focus is on the 5th drop-down and i hit the TAB button ,
because the horizontal scroll moves at the same time,
the focus does not go onto the 6th drop down and my focus is lost.





the same does not happen with text boxes.
Focus is available on each and every text box for every TAB hit.








can somebody let me know if there is any solution to this
, i,e restoring the focus on the drop-down even when
the
horizontal scroll bar in a page is present.
