Setting the 'NO-TAB' property on a graphical control can be done using 'MODIFY' and this works properly. However, it is not clear if there is a way to reverse the 'NO-TAB' setting without exiting the screen.
A screen has several entry fields and some fields need to be skipped based on information contained in other fields. The 'NO-TAB' property can be set on the desired fields using 'MODIFY' and this works properly. It is not clear if there is a way to reverse the 'NO-TAB' setting without exiting the screen. There is not an 'ON/OFF' or 'TRUE/FALSE' setting for the 'NO-TAB' property.
The only way to remove the NO-TAB style from a control is to destroy the control and redisplay it without specifying the NO-TAB style. The same is true for the SECURE style available on an entry-field. A different option is to avoid the NO-TAB style and used the ENABLED property for the control, the ENABLED property can be turned set and unset using the MODIFY verb.
