    How does one Tab through a Combobox or a PopupMenu?
    I can Tab into a ComboBox going down the Tab-Order List and up that list, but I cannot continue down that list.
    Or rather when I tab into the Combobox, no matter if I have the shift key down or not, it still goes back up the list.

    Never Mind. I had code in LostFocus

    @Arthur G I can Tab into a ComboBox going down the Tab-Order List and up that list, but I cannot continue down that list.

    This statement seems to contradict itself.

    Are you talking about tabbing between controls? Or through the items in the menu portion of those controls?

    Sorry.
    Yes. Tabbing through controls.
    I'm looking also at the Tab Order List.
    It doesn't follow the Tab Order List when tabbing through controls

    Tab order is only used to determine the order that focus moves from control to control. Once you get to a control like a popupmenu or a combo box, the user typically uses their up/down arrow keys to move through the menu.

    Correct. That part works.
    When I tab out of it, it goes backwards in order

    I can't replicate this on Sierra. Can you create a sample project?
