Another dumb question - ASP.NET General

I have 2 textboxes and a button on my .aspx form. When I press tab on the first box, it goes to the addressbar, then to the second box after another tab. I thought that maybe if I set the tab order this would be fixed, but no. TIA Tibmeister...

    Hi Tibby,

    Make sure you set the Tabindex property on each control. You may also want
    to check out Andy Smith's FirstFocus control
    ([url]http://www.metabuilders.com/Tools/FirstFocus.aspx[/url]). I've never used it,
    but I've used other controls from Metabuilders and they've worked well.

    Good luck!

    I agree, and that's why Text1 is TabIndex0, Text2 is TabIndex 1, and
    Command1 is TabIndex2. I've noticed on brand new pages things are behaving,
    I'm trying to figure out why this page isn't.
